Modern Cabin: New Designs for an American Icon

Modern Cabin: New Designs for an American Icon Cover

 

Staff Pick

Gorgeous and a little on the fancy-pants side, these are the cabins that you drive to in your Jag. For those of us who may not be rockin' the upscale cabin price tag, there are plenty of great styles to adapt and incorporate into our own living space. Author Michelle Kodis always pulls together a well-crafted book with great attention to detail and design: Modern Cabin fits that bill.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now in paperback, Modern Cabin presents twenty-two contemporary cabins in a variety of locales across North America. Today's cabin speaks to a sophisticated design aesthetic-even if it has a rustic facade. It incorporates up-to-date materials and state-of-the-art techniques, including prefabrication. It is built to last and is often built green. But despite its dramatic shift from the log cabin of yesteryear, the modern cabin at its core hasn't changed: it is still that quiet place where reflection and recreation thankfully edge out the duties of everyday life.
