Small Log Homes Whether you're dreaming of a starter home or a lifelong retreat, Small Log Homes is an indispensable idea book for planning, building, and outfitting your cabin in the woods or on the prairie. Lush photographs show how log-home owners, builders, and contractors around the country have achieved the richness and warmth of cabin living within the bounds of economy and space management. And all without feeling cramped or hamstrung. The perfect starting point for your own cabin, fifteen plans by contractor/author Robbin Obomsawin are thoughtfully designed to help you develop and create a structure that will reflect your personal style and match your vision of the perfect log home. The result is a home that feels large but has fewer than 2,500 square feet. Practicing prudence and economy of space, her floor plans have been created to simplify life--one's own, or the comings and goings of an entire family. As Small Log Homes inspires your own cozy log-home dreams, quality designs and decor are bound to materialize into a timeless treasure for many generations to enjoy. Robbin Obomsawin is the construction manager and general contractor for Beaver Creek Log Homes. She has served many terms as vice president of the American/Canadian Log Builders' Association for Handcrafters. She combines twenty years of log-joinery experience with her knowledge of conventional construction. Possessing an educational background in the fine arts, she uses her artistic skills to develop unique designs and works of art within the trade of handcrafted log building. Her plans have been featured in many log-home publications, including the Log Home Living 2000 Plansbook, Log Homes Illustrated, Log Home Design Ideas, and the Log Home Guide.show more
