Image: How to Build and Furnish a Log Cabin: The easy, natural way using only hand tools and the woods around you, by W. Ben Hunt (Author.) Publisher: Collier Books (November 15, 1974)
National Log Cabin Day
-- remembers a quieter and simpler era, when life was more rugged. Historically most Log cabins were a simple one or 1½-story structures, somewhat impermanent, and less finished or less architecturally sophisticated. A log cabin was usually constructed with round rather than hewn, or hand-worked, logs, and often it was the first generation home building erected quickly for frontier shelter. Source
Read: How to Build and Furnish a Log Cabin, by W. Ben Hunt
-- W. Ben Hunt's classic has earned a reputation as the authentic handbook since it was first published in 1939. Updated in 1974, it remains the only step-by-step guide to building log cabins and log furniture -- pioneer style. There are other manuals on building cabins, but W. Ben Hunt's is the only one to show you how to build and furnish an authentic pioneer cabin-the easy, natural way, using only hand tools and the woods around you. Our ancestors used logs and hand tools to build durable, dry, windproof, and protective dwellings; and they fashioned chairs, tables, branches, and bushes. In this day of power saws, lumberyards, and high prices, it's good to know that you can build in the same way.
