Owner Built House

B. Allan Mackie’s most recent book.

Allan Mackie believes – and demonstrates in this book – that attitude is at least as important as carpentry skills.

Given a will to learn and a desire to make something of one’s own, the average person is more than capable of building a log house that will serve an individual, couple, or family for years to come.

  • Hundreds of photographs and detailed drawings take the reader step by step through the log home building process: selecting the land; purchasing and preparing the logs, and all the other steps involved.

As a unique feature of the book, the author takes us through his current log home building project on a 100 acre wilderness site. The reader experiences the entire process – from buying the land right up to moving in and spending that first winter.  bb157
