Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Take a tour through twenty-five modern log homes reborn in the Arts & Crafts tradition, and witness how Craftsman style combines with the latest in log hybrid architecture to create a totally new and unique genre of building in The Arts & Crafts Cabin. In this new title from log building expert Robbin Obomsawin, the rich Arts & Crafts heritage of the late 1800s that rebelled against mass-produced goods and the opulence of the Victorian era melds beautifully with the ideals of log home design and cabin living, where a simple life and appreciation for fine craftsmanship are held in the highest esteem.

This new hybrid style incorporates the exquisite workmanship and sophistication that have become hallmarks of Arts & Crafts design with the warmth and comfort of log elements to create homes inspired by nature, creativity, and simple beauty. With one of the industry's premier photographers, Roger Wade, and the log industry's most prolific and respected author, Robbin Obomsawin, The Arts & Crafts Cabin uses spectacular color photography, floor plans, and compelling historical text to showcase how the principles and philosophy of William Morris, Gustav Stickley, and Charles and Henry Greene combine with modern artistry to create some of the most exciting residential and recreational architecture being created today.

Robbin Obomsawin is the construction manager and general contractor for Beaver Creek Log Homes. Robbin has served as vice president of the International Log Builders Association for Handcrafters and is the author of Small Log Homes, Best Log Home Plans, The Not So Log Cabin, and Log Cabin Classics. She lives in New York State.
