How to incorporate simple log elements into any home. A fresh take on a favorite architectural style. 20 B&W photos, 145 Color photos; 10x10 inches, 160 pgs.
Long known for her expertise in log construction, Robbin Obomsawin shakes things up in her newest book The Not So Log Cabin, which looks at how to incorporate simple log elements into any home. A fresh take on a favorite architectural style, The Not So Log Cabin combines log building with conventional construction to create a new hybrid called log-element building. It is an easy way to get the "log look" while using fewer natural resources. Log-element building ensures a unique home, becuase it can reflect traditional styles like Adirondack, Southwestern, or Western, depending on the desire of the builder or owner. Complete with original blueprints for log-element building, The Not So Log Cabin is a great idea book for building a not-so-ordinary log home.
