Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dale Mulfinger is widely acknowledged as the foremost expert on cabins in North America. His first book, The Cabin: Inspiration for the Classic American Getaway, has sold over 165,000 copies and has consistently been the leading book in the category since it was published in 2001. In this new collection of 37 cabins, Mulfinger rekindles his love for this treasured American icon with fresh insight and seasoned strategies for the logic, utility, and beauty of cabin design.

Cabins speak of modesty, shared spaces for the camaraderie of family and friends, and an open, relaxed atmosphere. Many of the cabins showcased in Back to the Cabin capture this iconic spirit, where life is simple, the mudroom is entry enough for all, and burning wood is for more than just charm. There are also some surprises along the way, with cabins that come packaged as kits, cabins built from recycled materials, and other whimsical examples designed "just for the fun of it."
