Book review – Cabin Porn

Hi Bloggers, lets start by saying this book is NOT what you might be thinking. If you clicked on the post because you’re a frikkin deviate, don’t worry, you’re in good company (along with the rest of the self-accepting world). However, if you were looking for some kinky euro porn, you might have to navigate to some other website. Fortunately for you, there is tons of that shit on the net, so knock yourself out!

Meanwhile, I’m going to do a semi-serious book review, because I do take myself semi-seriously as a book consumer and a blogger.

Ok, so the book: two words: Fekkin Gorgeous. Actually I’m going to take artistic license with this one and add to those two words: inspirational, beautiful, well written, intelligent, well set out, etc. I’ll keep it simple. The pictures are amazing. Really this book would appeal to anyone whether you were into cabins or not.

While I’m at it, who’s not into cabins, or at least romanticising about cabins? I can imaging myself planning one, building one, going out to camp in it.

Ok, even if you are not into cabins (and I cant imagine anyone in this category), you will be entertained by the amazing photography and well written side stories about the history of and people behind these structures.

Without giving too much away, the book is set up in different sections, such as ‘how to build a homestead,’ or ‘how to build a yurt,’ or a simple shelter etc.  Its also nice that you can literally open this book at any page and enjoy the archive of cabins that the authors have put together.

This image is from the book.

These guys even have a website:

Its really worth a look.
