The Rustic Cabin: Design & Architecture

Overview

With a focus on architecture and details, Ralph Kylloe introduces creative rustic designs that are reviving the age-old tradition of cabin craftsmanship. Included are newly built log and stone homes steeped in history, not only of the region where they are built but also of the log-building history of Scandinavian ancestors and mountain men whose small log cabins protected them from the harsh elements of the mountain frontier and gave them comfort by a cozy fire.

Overview

With a focus on architecture and details, Ralph Kylloe introduces creative rustic designs that are reviving the age-old tradition of cabin craftsmanship. Included are newly built log and stone homes steeped in history, not only of the region where they are built but also of the log-building history of Scandinavian ancestors and mountain men whose small log cabins protected them from the harsh elements of the mountain frontier and gave them comfort by a cozy fire.

Displaying photographic details of the highest-quality workmanship in stone masonry and log work, these homes also boast a blending of fine antiques and contemporary furnishings. Arts & Crafts, Scandinavian, and western legacies in furniture building and interior styling steal the scene in many rooms.

These homes are rich in vision, beauty and warmth-photographed and framed by Ralph's keen eye for quality and richness.

Read an Excerpt

The human race is very old. We've gone through all kinds of changes since we've been here. Truthfully, we're not the most stable creatures on earth. But we try. Some things are constant however. We've always sought shelter. We've always needed to protect ourselves from the elements, from nasty creatures and, unfortunately, occasionally, from ourselves. The cold can kill us. So can the heat and monsters of all sorts. Although we are dramatically social creatures we also seek our own individuality. We want our own privacy. We want something or some place that is our own. We need to influence our own environment. We love to collect and decorate things. We seek to express ourselves. Sometimes we don't know why. But we do anyway.

Language is a poor method of expressing ourselves. It is incredibly limited. What does a painting or a tune really mean? Who knows? We don't really have adequate answers. It's just emotions and the profound need to express ourselves and communicate with others. Like many other emotions beauty is hard to articulate. But all of us, I think, acknowledge beauty of some sort.

Why art exists at all is not an easy question. But it does exist and for most of us it increases the quality of our lives. Art is funny stuff. One person loves one thing and someone else thinks it's dumb or stupid or ugly. Who knows? If you like it…. Great…if you don't like it then, as some say, you have no taste so…. shut up. Let me be, will you please. Our thoughts and our tastes are uniquely our own.
