If you’ve had cabin dreams since reading Thoreau’s “Walden” surf a wave over to the site “Cabin Porn” for inspiration and then by Lou Ureneck’s book Cabin: Two Brothers, a Dream, and Five Acres in Maine . The website details photos of great little spots around the world, many that are masterfully built. Ureneck’s book details his life coming unraveled in midlife and buying some property, in Maine, to build a cabin, with his brother and his nephews. It is a great read for anyone who has dreamed of building a cabin and if you are familiar with that part of the country that much more meaningful. It is well written and a quick read.
Or you can just re-read Henry David Thoreau’s classic.
