Your Log House
If you have been looking for a book
that describes the art of building log homes, you have
come to the right place.
Your Log House, written
by Vic Janzen (a founding father of the International
Log Builders' Association), is useful for apprentices
and other newcomers to the craft. For the professional
builder, it would also serve prospective customers to
both inspire them further and to bring them up to speed
on the language and concepts of log building.
The book includes a collection of 15
house plans which could be added to the collections
which builders maintain to inspire their customers in
the design and features of their project. There are
over 250 illustrations (drawings and
photos). This is not a manual that can be read as a
book, put on the shelf and the building started. It
is for on-site reference intended to be open on the
job. The book is written in a cumulative style.
That is, it is necessary to start at the beginning and
gain knowledge as the book and building project progresses.
For anyone with a dream to build a
log house or have one built professionally,
this book will instruct, inspire and assist the reader
in becoming knowledgeable about log construction at
