Filled with sound advice and over 300 clear, detailed drawings, this book guides you through the entire process of building a log home from start to finish.
Written by a seasoned carpenter with over 20 years of experience as a log home builder, it instructs readers to complete each step in a safe and efficient manner, avoiding the many pitfalls that can add time, cost and frustration. It presents up-to-date methods, including "green" practices intended to help preserve the health of both the builder and the environment.
As well as all aspects of log selection and construction of the log shell, it covers how to make best use of your site, log stair construction, cabinet installation and more. The advice on installing drywall on inner walls, without courting disaster caused by log shrinkage and settling, is clear, complete and hard to find elsewhere.
