Read an Excerpt

Introduction

Since so much information has already been written about manufactured or milled methods, designs, and applications, much of this book focuses on the handcrafted style of log building and construction. These storybook camps and cottages are inspired by renewed interest in smaller, more practical log homes. They provide a starting point for some basic but classic plans, thoughtfully designed to help you develop and create a structure that will suit your personal style and match your vision of the perfect log home.
