"With more and more people opting for smaller homes and simple living, the cabin continues to be a place of practicality and charm. 'Back to the Cabin' rekindles our love for this treasured American icon with fresh insight and seasoned strategies for the logic, utility, and beauty of its 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 old-world 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"--Dust jacket flap.
