  • The Family Cabin (eBook PDF)

Voted best Interior Design book of 2017 by Library Journal

DALE MULFINGER has been building and writing about cabins for more than 20 years and is widely acknowledged as the foremost expert on cabins in North America. In this new collection of 37 cabins and fascinating cabin stories, Mulfinger rekindles his love for this enduring American icon and provides inspiration for anyone dreaming of a peaceful retreat for their own family. Cabins have held a unique place in the lives and lore of many American families since the beginning of the 20th century, and cabin creation continues today with new forms and materials that give shelter at nature’s doorstep. Some of the cabins featured are brand-new, others have been passed down through the generations, but all are places where families come together to relax, to fish, to swim, to sit around the campfire, and best of all to make cabin memories.

“Architect and ‘cabinologist’ Dale Mulfinger possesses an intuitive sense about the deep

affection we hold for our cabins. Whether old or new, cottage or camp, these homes away

from home are intimate refuges where the family circle expands to include the woods,

the lake, the seashore.” — Chris Lee, editor of Midwest Home magazine
