Overview

The Cabin: Inspiration for the Classic American Getaway by Dale Mulfinger, Susan E. Davis

" The Cabin is our heart's retreat" write the authors, and what a wonderful place to escape to.

Building on the theory that less is more, The Cabin takes this idyllic retreat from mind's eye to reality—with striking photographs and ample charm.

In this one-of-a-kind book, you'll discover an amazing array of design styles and materials — from sticks and stones to sheet metal and glass. You'll find 37 inspirational cabins from all over the country showing how people are building, reclaiming and transforming this unique American dwelling. The Cabin celebrates the appeal of this unique form or retreat, providing inspiration and practical ideas for realizing your own cabin dream.

Based on design, shape, age and material, the cabins are divided into four distinct styles: rustic, traditional, modern and transformed. Whatever the style, each is a classic American getaway. The Cabin features:

  • 37 inspirational cabins from around all over the country.
  • Nearly 250 photographs and 50 illustrations
  • Detailed descriptions, site plans, and floor plans
