Let me begin by saying this is one of the most useful books out there on cabins.However, it is not a book that tells you "how to build a cabin" or that gives you specific designs or plans.Admittedly what I was hoping to find here was 10-15 good plans for cabins along with pictures and the nuts and bolts of how to build one.This book does not provide any of that.What this book has is a lot of tips on planning, building and living in a cabin. It's a very good book to read before you build your cabin.But it does not contain designs, price ranges or any real basic "how to" info on the actual building of a cabin.But despite the information it lacks I have given it 4 stars because it's very readable and I do consider it a "must read" before you do find your design and begin to build it.
I gave this book five stars because I bought it before I built. Now that the cabin is done this book isn't as useful.That said this book is amazing. It has the essence of cabin life with the occasional real life story thrown in. It also is very well organized and thought out. It could have more information on certain topics, but then it was be a series of books not just a light reader.Overall it asks you some hard questions to help you avoid big mistakes. It charges your soul with cabin ideas and stories. Then it offers suggestions within categories to ensure you think of everything before you build.This book is a must have for cabin lovers and anyone thinking of building one. It is a great gift for those folks!
building a get-away, seriously downsizing, or just able to dream. There are a lot of tips, suggestions, and "don't forgets" for those researching. It is not a one size fits all, but is one for your "cabin references".
Gosh, how to capture what I feel about Mr Mulfingers books? I bought all three books over two years ago now by Mr Mulfinger; The Cabin, Back to the Cabin and Cabinology as my cabin fever begun to swell in me and I was seriously considering buying a little place in Utah of my own. Well, two years later, with a whole lot of sacrifice, dedication, sweat, tears and some blood, I have a property of my own and Mr Mulfingers books are the center pieces of my bookshelf. All three of the books I would say are a must for anyone looking for inspiration for their cabin, or harboring a secret dream of having one. Cabinology especially breaks down the process of either building a cabin from scratch on a piece of land you bought, restoring one or adding onto one. For dreamers as well as for practical doers, Cabinology is one book which I go back frequently to and which holds a special place in my heart. I know you will enjoy it too. Good luck in realizing your dreams.
I loved Dale Mulfinger's The Cabin with its great assembly of cabins in every style and price range. And Cabinology is the perfect sequel -- it gives you the examples but also tells you how to achieve a cabin for yourself. Whether you have land and money or yet just a dream, Cabinology delivers a huge value. Wonderful photographs, illustrations, to-the-point "cabiny" quotations, and interesting first-person Cabin Stories from happy cabin owners -- or just cabin lovers -- all across North America.If you really want a cabin of your own, or are just content with the dream, get Cabinology. The name says it all.
This is a great companion to Mulfinger's "The Cabin" book. This book has wonderful photos and sketches that detail a variety of cabin ideas and designs. Good tips for the planning and layout of a cabin. I've enjoyed every chapter. I gave four stars instead of five because I would like to know the budget for some of the cabins shown in the photos. I would recommend this book for anyone who is interested in building a cabin. Thank you, Dale, for another great book.
Just bought some property with the thought of building a cabin on it in a few years. This book really has our creative juices flowing. Certainly not the last resource I'll read, but a great first one.
This book is so delightful to read. It is very insightful and I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. It if full of wonderful ideas and helpful hints to make the process of building a cabin far less scary and to help avoid unnecessary mistakes. I also love the warm story that folks share about their cabin. I highly recommend this book.
