From a little stone homestead in the country comes this catalog of books for the outdoors person who dreams of log cabins (or stone houses), and simple-living in the country. A sanely planned country place is shaped around the wild animals living close by, so your connection to them is even greater.

Within this Web site you will find the information to make those dreams of doing-it-yourself and dwelling in remote places a reality. Subjects include buying land, building your own home using stone or logs, adobe straw bales; going underground; carpentry, wiring, alternative power systems; planning a garden, raising livestock; considering new lifestyles, and building your own business. Do part of it, or all of it. Create the vision, build your world, take control of your life.
