Long known for her expertise in log construction, Robbin Obomsawin shakes things up in her newest book The Not So Log Cabin, which looks at how to incorporate simple log elements into any home. A fresh take on a favorite architectural style, The Not So Log Cabin combines log building with conventional construction to create a new hybrid called log-element building. It is an easy way to get the "log look" while using fewer natural resources. Log-element building ensures a unique home, because it can reflect traditional styles like Adirondack, Southwestern, or Western, depending on the desire of the builder or owner. Complete with original blueprints for log-element building, The Not So Log Cabin is a great idea book for building a not-so-ordinary log home.
Robbin Obomsawin is the construction manager and general contractor for Beaver Creek Log Homes. She combines over twenty years of log-joinery experience with her knowledge of conventional construction, and has served as vice president of the American/Canadian Log Builders' Association for Handcrafters. She is the author of Small Log Homes and Best Log Home Plans. She lives in Westdale, New York.
