There are other manuals on building cabins, but W. Ben Hunt's is the only one to show you how to build and furnish an authentic pioneer cabin-the easy, natural way, using only hand tools and the woods around you. Our ancestors used logs and hand tools to build durable, dry, windproof, and protective dwellings; and they fashioned chairs, tables, branches, and bushes. In this day of power saws, lumberyards, and high prices, it's good to know that you can build in the same way.
Pick a spot on the land where you will start building a foundation. Building a foundation can be done by just about anyone, it just takes a bit of time and work. The gist of it is mixing the concrete, which can be done in a wheelbarrow by hand (not recommended) or using any tools that you wish to use. 153554b96e
