Log Cabins – How to Build and Furnish Them
New York, NY –-(Ammoland.com)- Build and furnish your own dream home in the forest. Log Cabins By William S. Wicks.
Some things stand the test of time. No matter how many new McMansions spring up over the decades, building one’s own rustic cabin in the woods will always have a special appeal to those with a love of nature in their hearts.
Written by William S. Wicks, a former Buffalo, N.Y. park commissioner who later became a prominent architect, Log Cabins has color illustrations and detailed instructions on building everything from temporary shelters for emergency situations to embellishments —such as window seats, chairs, tables, and wainscoting— for a more permanent residence.
This reprint includes Wicks’s floorplans and diagrams for his own fantastically sophisticated log homes and lodges, with multiple floors, porches, and staircases.
This book includes instructions for building:
- Adirondack cabins
- Tables, chairs, and other furniture
- Chimneys and fireplaces
- Doors, windows, and hinges
For each piece of furniture or architecture in this book, the easy-to-understand instructions include technical details on materials, item dimensions, required tools, assembly, and other practical materials.
Today’s emerging self-sufficiency movement is a testament to America’s devotion to its pioneer, naturalist roots. This refreshed edition of Log Cabins is an ideal way to help you enjoy the unique pleasure of creating a retreat within the natural splendor of the woods.
