From the creators of the hugely popular tumblr site, 'Cabin Porn', comes this collection of breath-taking photography of rural escapes and inspiring stories of people who've created their dream home. A simple shelter, somewhere peaceful, surrounded by nature . . . wherever you dream of having your quiet place, these rural escapes are for anyone yearning for a different kind of existence. Cabin Porn began as an online project created by a group of friends to inspire their own homebuilding. As they collected more photos, their site attracted thousands of submissions from other cabin builders and a passionate audience of more than ten million people. This book is an invitation to slow down, take a deep breath, and enjoy the beauty and serenity that happens when nature meets simple craft.
