Small Log Homes
Whether you're dreaming of a starter home or a lifelong retreat, Small Log Homes is an indispensable idea book for planning, building, and outfitting your cabin in the woods or on the prairie.
Lush photographs show how log-home owners, builders, and contractors around the country have achieved the richness and warmth of cabin living within the bounds of economy and space management. And all without feeling cramped or hamstrung.
The perfect starting point for your own cabin, fifteen plans by contractor/author Robbin Obomsawin are thoughtfully designed to help you develop and create a structure that will reflect your personal style and match your vision of the perfect log home. The result is a home that feels large but has fewer than 2,500 square feet.
