Overview

Dale Mulfinger is widely acknowledged as the foremost expert on cabins in North America. His first book, The Cabin: Inspiration for the Classic American Getaway, has sold over 165,000 copies and has consistently been the leading book in the category since it was published in 2001. In this new collection of 37 cabins, Mulfinger rekindles his love for this treasured American icon with fresh insight and seasoned strategies for the logic, utility, and beauty of cabin design.

Cabins speak of modesty, shared spaces for the camaraderie of family and friends, and an open, relaxed atmosphere. Many of the cabins showcased in Back to the Cabin capture this iconic spirit, where life is simple, the mudroom is entry enough for all, and burning wood is for more than just charm. There are also some surprises along the way, with cabins that come packaged as kits, cabins built from recycled materials, and other whimsical examples designed “just for the fun of it.”

    How many times have you hiked a mountain trail or a woodland path and come across a cabin and thought "If this was mine I would do .... Many of us do it just some of us look at a city home or apartment, my personal favorite has always been remote, rustic, and country. I have loved the cabin look since I was a child and watched the old westerns like Bonanza.

    Back to the Cabin is an extensive look at different cabins and how they have been modernized. With bold and beautiful pictures you will fall in love with each and every cabin to be found there. You are shown everything form the rustic getaway to a near palatial cabin. From the purchase through the renovations each cabin transforms itself into the home the owners envisioned.

    Sometimes it is just a matter of a few adjustments , staining, or just a coat of paint. Then again you might have to gut the inside and start from scratch to better make use of a small space. You will want to visit the cabins just so you can explore and see where they came up with their ideas and maybe get some for yourself. Pick this book celebrating the iconic cabin and it's reemergence as a popular chic getaway. The cabin is more than a fishing or hunting place to get out of the weather. Now it is a home, a retreat, a place to relax and enjoy life while renewing your spirit and Back to the Cabin celebrates this.
