Back in 1997 I picked up a book on building and restoring hewn log houses. It was a great resource for that first cabin I built. I highly recommend it if you are considering building a log cabin yourself.  The latest edition of that book is
The Classic Hewn-Log House: A Step-by-Step Guide to Building and Restoring


Below are some articles log cabin construction:
