When is a cabin more like a minimalist contemporary glass house in the woods? When the said cabin is featured in the book Cabins: The New Style. These modern cabins have little more in common with the prototypical log cabin than a natural setting. Everything else is unambiguously contemporary, from the materials used, steel and glass for example, to the interiors and their modern conveniences. 15 houses in all are profiled and “the great variation in size and natural settings of these cabins allows readers to find locations and new concepts and applications of the traditional cabin that will work with their own desires and in their own environs.”. Authored by James Grayson Trulove, hardcover, 192 pages, full color images throughout, $22.05 at Amazon.
