The Cabin Book
The Cabin Book | Linda Leigh Paul

The cabin is perhaps the most iconic of American structures, harkening back to colonial and pioneer days. They recall a time before cell phones and email, evoking images of cozy fireplaces and quiet contemplation. For many, the cabin also summons forth images of logs and plaid, plank floors and lofted beds. The Cabin Book offers a wonderful variety of forms and explores the most innovative designs in cabin architecture. Once rustic and simple, the cabin is now comfortable and chic, putting owners in the heart of the wilderness while providing comfort and beauty so they can get away in style. Among the 25 cabins included is a little-known Wisconsin cabin designed by Frank Lloyd Wright; an upstate Michigan log cabin designed by renowned architect Anthony Belluschi; and a one-room "urban" cabin in Portland, Oregon. One couple designed a cabin-all on one floor-without the use of right angles. Whether ensconced in glass or surrounded by an enormous porch, these cabins speak of personal style, perfect for the rugged or the sybaritic. Like cottages, the cabin is one of the most popular house styles, since it is small enough to be inexpensive and easy to maintain. Everyone dreams of an idyllic retreat, and this book showcases its best examples. The cabin is perhaps the most iconic of American structures, harkening back to colonial and pioneer days.

Trying to decide which book to take with me to the cabin this weekend. I‘m most likely to finish Kindred and I have Hitler on my kindle, but what else? 🤔 I can‘t take Bone Season because it‘s a re-read and I‘m going to read the series with my husband. The rest though...decisions, decisions!

dariazeoli I love On Writing! For something quick, Coraline is a good choice. 1y

Here are a few pictures of our place (that doesn't have the cat in them) in the woods. I miss it already, but will be back when the renovations are done. This month didn't go as planned, but I got a lot accomplished anyways, and am looking forward to long hikes, uninterrupted reading, and lots of time for writing later this summer. #romantsy
