Product description

In 2010, journalist and author Will Jones left the hustle and bustle of London to start a new life in rural Canada with his young family. His vision was to construct a secluded cabin in the woods, a tranquil retreat away from the chaos of modern life. This book chronicles his journey in creating the perfect hideaway, drawing inspiration from cabin-building traditions worldwide.

Throughout history, cabins have served various purposes, from homes and nature-watching huts to whimsical retreats. Today, the appeal of cabin-building endures as people seek a deeper connection with nature and the serenity of the wilderness. From indigenous dwellings and early settlers' homes in the New World to contemporary Nordic summer houses and artist sanctuaries, the timeless charm of cabins continues to captivate. In this book, Will Jones delves into the rich history and allure of cabin-building, examining architectural styles, regional quirks, and the tools and techniques used by builders past and present.

Blending the personal narrative of his cabin project with practical, illustrated guidance on every aspect of the process—from site selection and orientation to foundations and interior design—Jones’s book is a treasure trove of inspiration. With the desire to escape urban life and reconnect with nature stronger than ever, this part memoir, part historical exploration, and part practical handbook is an essential read for anyone dreaming of building their own cabin.
