A few weeks ago we got a spiral bound little book showing construction of a cabin in the woods. Maximillian Godino dedicated the book to Shelter Publications, saying he was influenced to build his cabin by our books Shelter and Home Work. He milled all the wood on the land and used old windows and ship’s portholes for light, and built it on weekends with hand tools and a chainsaw. I wrote today thanking him for the book, and he sent me a return email, which included the below:
Since I was a little kid growing up in a house made of railroad ties on Tennessee Valley Road in Mill Valley I have thumbed the pages of Shelter. Before my dad died he presented me with the well worn copy you see here and it has given me tremendous satisfaction to be able to construct something inspired to a great extent by your research and photos.
