The Real Log Cabin

Chilson D. Aldrich

From a review on goodreads: Chilson D. Aldrich wrote this book in 1928; Drabik expanded it in 1933. Aldrich was an architect in Minneapolis, MN, and part of a circle that was celebrating a “back to nature” movement”. The book is a manual for city-folks who want to build their own log cabin retreat, and it is written with wit and anecdotes that makes one imagine that most readers were reading and dreaming, not actually building. It is nigh unto scripture for architectural historians studying the cabins of the well-to-do in this period.
