Classic Cabin & Cottage Building book from 1979
« on: June 28, 2013, 09:26:49 AM »
I recently dug out this old chestnut from the back of the bookcase. A Time Life hardbound from the peak of the last back to the land movement. Covers all the territory with great step-by-step diagrams. See content page and sample page below:

This on building and leveling concrete piers.

Amazon has lots of used copies available for $4.00 including shipping CLICK HERE
This sturdy book covers the whole thing from clearing the land to bringing water down from a stream or lake. Doesn't cover electrical work or indoor plumbing, but does a very good job on what it does cover. Also a fun read.
