Overview

Each gorgeous log home shown here was built with reclaimed timbers that were hand-hewn at least a century ago. The homes vary from small to large, and cover layouts from "erected as found" to modern configurations. One thing they all have in common, though, is that they look the way log homes are supposed to look. Dove-tailed corners, weathered barn wood, antique heart pine, and ancient beams, logs, and posts were used abundantly in their construction. If you're hoping to build such a home for yourself, or expand your existing home with a log addition, this book will provide help and inspiration. Each of the 27 projects featured includes a floor plan perfect for today's lifestyles, while maintaining the integrity of log home construction and preserving the great timbers that sheltered our forebearers.
