Log-houses and pole-houses are adaptable to both temporary and permanent shelters for man and beast in those sections of the country where cutover land is being brought into cultivation and in other regions where timber is plentiful. In such regions a farmer just starting out can construct of logs and poles nearly all the shelters and many conveniences needed for his immediate use, thus obtaining a comfortable temporary home with the expenditure of little money and conserving his capital for the development of the farm and the building of a permanent home later.
The principles of log and pole construction are few and simple, but they are not well understood by the general public. Originally published in the 1940s, this book outlines the chief points to be observed in building with logs and poles, and it is believed that one should have little difficulty in planning an attractive home and certain other useful structures after studying the text and illustrations.
