Detailed Description

Cabins & Cottages &$45 Revised and Expanded : The Basics of Building a Getaway Retreat for Hunting, Camping, and Rustic Living. Editor, John Kelsey

Whether building a summer cottage in the woods, the hunting cabin of your dreams, or homesteading off the grid, this handy reference provides a logical and sensible approach to building permanent shelter in out-of-the-way places.

Including everything from choosing and clearing a site and creating an electrical power source, to clearing the land and creating a foundation, this book offers instruction on building an A-frame cabin and a rustic log cabin with a framed roof. There is also a special section on designing small buildings to cope with "Mother Nature", including earthquakes, heavy snow, high wind, and flooding.

Paperback, 168 pages. ISBN 978-1-56523-967-8
