In years past, the mention of a log home conjured up images of a primitive vacation cabin in the heart of a wooded wilderness, but now log-home living has become a strong contemporary component of the culture of many countries. Log-home design and construction encompasses styles from the historic and traditional to the heights of modern innovation and opulence. The authors use lessons and legacies from the architectural past, as well as the newest of modern design ideas, to inform and inspire the log-home architect, builder, interior designer, or buyer. Classic and contemporary homes are beautifully showcased, inside and out, and are accompanied by a clearly illustrated section on care, maintenance, and construction details. This bright and beautiful book has over two hundred spectacular color photographs. From the Old House Journal reference library.
