Each house is introduced with a few paragraphs on the first page and followed with several-to-many pages of magnificent full-color photos, many full- or double-page. Plans and elevations shown are small-scale; a magnifier would be useful.
The value is inspiration. Whether you aspire to build or own a humble cabin or a magnificent retreat, you will find many ideas here.
The designs range from "ugh!" ugly to "huh?!" impractical. A cabin with all windows and no curtains? Yea, that's really practical! But it looks nice on the cover... I guess... Not so nice to live in, at night... or on sunny hot days!
Many of the designs are just downright ghastly. One is actually very nice, beautiful wood all over, but then has wire fencing instead of wood (to keep people from falling out of the loft)... Weird! But other than that very questionable choice, that cabin is the only one in the book that I liked.
This book doesn't even make it as a coffee table book.
Useless. The trees used to make this book should have been saved, they were beautiful and natural whereas the cabins pictured here are mostly god-awful.
