Designing a Better Log Home
Log home design has long been dominated by books
about the technique of log construction or the technical aspects
of the design process. ON DESIGN helps us reflect on how we actually
live in our log homes so we might better think about how we design
the spaces we inhabit.
"In order to succeed, our homes must serve
us...by creating spaces that speak to us: creating an environment
that grounds our being, an appreciation of finely-crafted materials,
a relationship with the natural world beyond the walls...translating
what is not physical—emotional, psychological and cultural
qualities—into a physical form—our log homes."
(From the Introduction.)
With ON DESIGN, Murray Arnott has edited a broad
collection of his inspirational articles on log home design, adding
beautiful photographs illustrating specific aspects of design. Click
