Self Published by Mackie, 2nd edition 1972. Oblong 9.5" x 12.5". Very good. Collectible early edition. No jacket as issued. Light edgewear, light soiling to cover, few small stain to outer edges. Laminate on cover is a little loose at a couple corners. Internal pages are very nice - tight, clean, a little age tanning. B/w illustrations.

This classic is still considered the best book ever written on making a full sized log home. Building with Logs covers: financing, the site, planning a good home, acquisition of logs, how to fall a tree and trim it, storage of logs, safety, foundations and basements, first logs and floor joists, hewing and the broad axe, cutting a round notch, sealing between the logs, setting allowance, gable ends, electrical wiring, finishing touches and much more.

The author has continued to teach, design and build. His schools have trained thousands of good craftsmen, some of whom formed companies to build internationally, with the result that the world-wide standard for excellence in log building is now a "Mackie" log house.
