B. Allan Mackie. Allan believes - and demonstrates in this book - that attitude is at least as important as carpentry skills. Given a will to learn and a desire to make something of one's own, the average person is more than capable of building a log house that will serve an individual, a couple, or a family for years to come. Follow Allan as he takes you through his log building project on a 100-acre wilderness site. You will see everything from buying the land right up through spending the first winter in your log home. Hundreds of log construction photographs and detailed diagrams and drawings. 232 pages. (Softcover). Nonreturnable.
