The Homestead Builder: Practical Hints for Handy-Men Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This practical classic, first published in 1872, is filled with handy advice on the best ways to plan and construct dwellings in any location, using wood, earth, and gravel. Included is no-nonsense instruction on how to erect log cabins and houses, slab houses, farm houses, and many others; as well as guidance on building an outdoor oven, a cellar, fence posts, gates, furniture, and even on adding a walk in the yard or garden. Originally written for those fanning out from the eastern cities to homestead, The Homestead Builder is a fascinating historical record and completely useful handbook that is sure to appeal to anyone interested in Americana or inclined toward self-sufficiency.
