With the help of his son, architect Charles D. White spent seven years building the perfect family retreat. Christened "Dunwurken" the vacation cottage became a beloved refuge from the bustle of city life and the source of fun and adventure. After many eager inquiries from friends and visitors about the mechanics of building a camp, White resolved to apply his professional know-how and actual experience to writing a book that would walk readers through every step of constructing their own camps and cottages--from selecting the perfect site and obtaining the appropriate materials to complete instructions for building, finishing, and painting.
This guide presents tested plans, expressed in simple terms, for 14 camps, cottages, and guest houses. More than 100 detailed drawings supplement the plans, illustrating how to lay out stairs, line up shingles, hang a door, set windows, and other tasks. For everyone who's ever dreamed of building a house, How to Build Camps and Cottages offers practical and inspirational information that is as relevant today as it was decades ago.
