2016 Revised Full Color Edition! Now Available!
“I’m pleased to announce that there will soon be a revised edition of my best-selling book, the RevisedLog Construction Manual.
It was first printed in 2002 — quite a while ago! — and while I have made some revisions each time it’s been printed, I decided that it was time for a fully revised edition.
So, now the book is in 100% color. ALL the photos are now in color, more than 50 photos are new, the drawings are now in color, and are revised and updated, and many drawings are new. Several chapters have been completely updated—for example the log truss chapter now includes my new truss construction method that I’ve been teaching at ILBA conferences, and in yards of pro builder’s throughout North America. The new method is also the simplest, by far, of all the methods—so do-it-yourselfers benefit most.” -Robert W. Chambers
Scroll down for the Tools-You-Need list!With questions always coming in about what log building tools and methods are best, we’ve assembled a quick reference for the log home tools we have found to make log building easier and safer.
After reading the Log Construction Manual and referring to it for many years on each building project, Robert Chambers then released his Building Log Homes DVD Series that illustrates the concepts found in the manual. The DVDs bring the concepts in the manual to life and clarified them. I highly recommend both to any builder new or experienced. I certainly think you will enjoy them and benefit from them as much as I have.
