My virtual library came about through my own search for relevant material. It can be hard to source a good supply of reading and reference material specific to log homes, log cabins, timber frame homes and all the related issues. That’s why I’ve put together a page with all the very best books, the best magazines, and other useful publications out there surrounding these topics.
Even knowing what is available is not enough. Some books are better than others, some magazines offer a specific slant or require a more in-depth knowledge up front. I try to sort through all the different publications out there and choose those I have found to be practical, useful, interesting and relevant to include in our virtual library.
Check out our log cabin book reviews, including the latest review of "Log Home Secrets of Success". We also encourage you to submit your own log home book review and we'll post it for everyone to share!
Alibris is the cheapest way I've found to buy books. Just type in the title or author of whatever book you're looking for and you can buy it used for up to 90% off.
Here are some favorites we recommend:
