Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"The Cabin is our heart's retreat" write the authors, and what a wonderful place to escape to. Building on the theory that less is more, The Cabin takes this idyllic retreat from mind's eye to reality — with striking photographs and ample charm. In this one-of-a-kind book, you'll discover an amazing array of design styles and materials — from sticks and stones to sheet metal and glass. You'll find 37 inspirational cabins from all over the country showing how people are building, reclaiming and transforming this unique American dwelling. The Cabin celebrates the appeal of this unique form or retreat, providing inspiration and practical ideas for realizing your own cabin dream.

Based on design, shape, age and material, the cabins are divided into four distinct styles: rustic, traditional, modern and transformed. Whatever the style, each is a classic American getaway. The Cabin features 37 inspirational cabins from around all over the country; nearly 250 photographs and 50 illustrations; detailed descriptions, site plans, and floor plans.

Review:

"The broad spectrum of cabins showcased here, from a one-room rustic to an all-glass Wisconsin aerie, is almost seductive enough to surrender to country-wilderness living. Mulfinger and Davis have done an exemplary job of building the emotional case for cabins — beautiful settings, simple shelter, and at-home feelings." Booklist
