Inspiring photographs of wilderness cabins from the new book by Taunton Press.

Back to Nature. Solitude. Escape. Intimacy. Self-sufficiency.
Romance. Refuge. Resourcefulness. Nostalgia. These are the
feelings these photographs of wilderness cabins evoke and they're at the root of my passion for this
elemental building form.

— Dale Mulfinger, architect cabinologist and co-author of  The Cabin

The shell for this cabin was a precut post-and-beam kit that was
constructed by three people during a
three-week vacation. The cabin sits on
the shore of Washington's Whidbey

Featuring an outdoor fireplace, this open-
air sleeping porch provides maximum
contact with the outdoors and views of the
surrounding San Juan Islands.

Recycled mahogany windows and six other species of
wood create the rich paneling in the living room of this whimsical
cabin on tiny Watch Island in New York's Adirondack Mountains.
