Read an Excerpt

Your own home--the stuff that dreams are made of! Building a custom home is often a long-awaited dream. For many, this dream includes a log home, but it's not always practical to build a log home from the ground up. Fortunately, you don't need a log home to evoke the romance of log home living--you can incorporate log elements in a new or existing home, creating the same feeling for a fraction of the cost and effort. The purpose of The Not So Log Cabin is to inspire you, the homeowner, to think outside the box and allow you to create a rustic spin on a new style of "log" home revised for modern-day lifestyles. With so many material choices possible that are as varied as the people who live in them, log-element structures provide a limitless style of construction. This new hybrid of architecture reflects the pioneering spirit of today's unique and adventurous builder.
