How to Build a Log Cabin or Home
Natural, rustic and simple. This 'older' book shows you in simple diagrams how to build rustic log structures and furniture the original way. I have used the methods to build a fantastic fence from trees harvested from my own property. I have also built most of the birdhouses. This book is not really for building a log cabin. It is the greatest book of folk art for rustic log furniture and structures I've ever seen. A reader from New Mexico, 1998
A comprehensive, step-by-step guide that shows the tools and techniques you'll need to craft a log home using your own logs or a kit. Includes basic construction techniques, floor plans, and secrets on how to save the most on building a log home. The publisher, 1998
A log home book for the rest of us. Most books on building log homes start with how to cut down a tree. They also talk about how inexpensive log homes are. My book does neither. I wrote Log Homes Made Easy to answer the questions of people who are looking for a modern log home. People who don't need to know how to sharpen a chainsaw or cut a notch, but, how to compare the "kits" offered by various manufacturers, how to find subcontractors, prepare a budget and get financing. In Log Homes Made Easy, I follow the entire process, step-by-step, beginning with evaluating land through designing, budgeting, financing and building. The text is supported by a number of forms that I developed for use when I was general contracting log homes. I intended for Log Homes Made Easy to be a handbook to get people through the complex and sometimes confusing process of building a modern log home. The author, 1997
This comprehensive guide offers help and advice from such respected manufacturers and associations as Lindal Cedar Homes, Timberpeg, Appalachin Homes, the National Association of Home Builders and the Log Homes Council on everything a consumer needs to know about buying, building, decorating, and furnishing log, cedar, and post-beam homes.
