Overview

If you’ve ever dreamt of building your own log cabin, or wondered if or how it could be done, you’ll find the answers and inspiration here. Half personal narrative, half how-to, A Home From The Woods details the methods used for four different log cabin projects: Uncovering and Restoring A Standing Cabin; A Hand-hewn Cabin; Building with Rounded Logs; and Taking Down and Recreating An Original Log Cabin.

That straightforward advice is countered with a first person narrative as the author relates his young family’s experiences and misadventures completing these projects. With little finances and less know-how, but plenty of determination and a little creativity, they proved again and again that if you long for that idyllic cabin of earth and wood, it can be achieved.

And, even if you’ll never set first foot in the forest you’ll be entertained reading what some people will put themselves through for “the simple life” in the country.
