This book, and its sibling CEDAR STYLE, were mainstays for log home and timber home clients before the digital photo revolution. Every client had dog-eared pages or post-it-notes highlighted photos of favorite log home exteriors, log home kitchens and baths, gable glass configurations, fireplaces……..ah, memories.
