"Nothing could be more American than the simple cabin. Not many generations ago, it was the backbone of American life, the headquarters of that important unit, the home. It provided shelter, protection, and a foundation upon which to build a great empire. The pioneer cabin was, in other words, a necessity."—From the Introduction
Once regarded as a safe haven and a vital source of security, the little cabin in the country is today more closely associated with leisurely activities—a vacation spot and even a health investment. First published in the 1930s, this helpful guide was designed to provide vacation home builders with all the information they needed to construct, decorate, and furnish a rustic little cottage. Floor plans and outlines of necessary materials are included, as are tips on constructing foundations, porches, doors, windows, fireplaces, and other structural elements. There are even suggestions for furnishing and beautifying your cabin.
A useful how-to manual, offering straightforward advice on the building process from foundation to roof, this practical book can also be enjoyed as an entertaining look at lifestyle elements of the early twentieth century.
