Redefining Log Homes


Designing a Better Log Home

Log home design has long been dominated by books about the technique of log construction or the technical aspects of the design process. ON DESIGN helps us reflect on how we actually live in our log homes so we might better think about how we design the spaces we inhabit.

“In order to succeed, our homes must serve us…by creating spaces that speak to us: creating an environment that grounds our being, an appreciation of finely-crafted materials, a relationship with the natural world beyond the walls…translating what is not physical—emotional, psychological and cultural qualities—into a physical form—our log homes.” (From the Introduction.)

With ON DESIGN, Murray Arnott has edited a broad collection of his inspirational articles on log home design, adding beautiful photographs illustrating specific aspects of design.Click here to order your copy.
