A wonderful book!

This book is a wealth of information for a first time log cabin builder. Charts, suggestions, tools, pictures. My husband and I are using this book to build our cabin. Highly recommended!

Very comprehensive

A very easy to read book(although technical in places) for the person serious about building your own log house. Beautiful photos make dreaming easy in this book.

Great Book

A classic from the a master log builder. Lots and lots of color pictures and great easy to read diagrams. For those who really want to build there own log cabin themselves. Deals mostly with hand scribed round log construction. A+

From the original log home do it yourself guy!

A great book! From the guy that started the whole log buildingindustry 30 years ago and continues to teach it worldwide. The main point here that Mr. Mackieillustrates is that you can do it yourself and that what you get is so much more than just a house.It's a lifestyle!Just the kind of message people need these days when everything is so high tech. Wood is good for the soul!! Keep up the good work Allan!
