Jim CooperFrom Library Journal:
As an experienced builder, Cooper is a strong proponent of log homes even while he debunks some of the myths associated with them (e.g., their rusticity makes them inexpensive and easy to build). Instead, as Cooper suggests, they are products of modern engineering and building methods, and their rustic ambience comes at a hefty price. Still, they occupy a solid niche in the home construction market. For enthusiasts and would-be inhabitants of log homes, Cooper provides concise and sensible information on shopping for kit homes, selecting and preparing suitable land, estimating construction costs, securing financing (sometimes tricky with log homes), and overseeing construction. Numerous well-conceived checklists and forms complete this solid guide for the owner/contractor. Recommended for most public libraries.
