Perhaps you were inspired by our post Alone in the Wilderness and now find yourself wanting to build your own cabin. All you need is a piece of land and the book The Wilderness Cabin by Calvin Rutstrum. It was a great find by blog Wildwood in a box of discarded literature. The book includes information about materials, the necessary tools and construction methods. The drawings are made by wildlife artist Les Kouba. The chance is I am ever going to build a wooden cabin myself are slim, but it is cool to read about "How it's Made".
