Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Wouldn't life be a whole lot better if somewhere out in the wild woody yonder sat a snug little cabin with your name on the mailbox? You know it would. If you have a cabin dream, this book is your ticket to making it real. With Cabinology as your map and architect and cabinologist Dale Mulfinger as your guide, you'll know the best way to approach every decision, from choosing a site for a new cabin, to remodeling an old one, to getting exactly the right fireplace for melting away all that ails you. Cabinology doesn't just guide you, it keeps you inspired. Throughout are photos of cabins small and large, great details and design tips, stories from other cabin owners around the country, and clever insights into getting a cabin of your own.

Book News Annotation:

Mulfinger, a noted architect who specializes in rural getaways, explains the basics of what he calls "cabinology," which is the skills needed to plan, build and equip a viable cabin in the middle of the woods. The author provides several approaches to the building of cabins based upon their intended purpose (fishing, hunting, skiing) and the level of comfort required by the residents (plumbing, electricity, space). Considerations for building materials are explained, as are provisions for septic tanks, wells, stoves and fireplaces. The author also explains the practical skills needed to survive in cabins, such as the ability to build a fire, live off the land, commune with nature and even make a decent crepe.
