A yearning for smaller homes...simpler times! Architect and renowned “cabinologist” Dale Mulfinger rekindles our love of the iconic American cabin in Back to the Cabin. This latest book picks up where his best seller, The Cabin, left off, engaging readers with fresh insights and strategies for designing a contemporary cabin with all the charm of yesteryear.
Renewing America’s long love affair with cabins. From rustic bungalows to log cabins, the bare-bones getaway house provides families with a sense of freedom from the everyday and the camaraderie of living close in shared spaces. In stark contrast to today’s hi-tech world, cabin living is uncomplicated and basic – another reason spurring interest in these cozy shelters.
A collection of 37 cabins – all different, all appealing. These cabins recapture an old-world spirit of simple living, when the mudroom was entry enough for all and burning wood was for more than just ambiance. Others are more surprising – the “new” cabin that blends old-time simplicity with modern must-haves, cabins that come packaged as kits, cabins built from recycled materials, and others that are “just for fun.”

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.
