Whether at camp, at the lake, in the mountains or high off in the backwoods, we all cherish our memories of summer vacations at the cabin. Maybe it was enjoying the coziness of log bunk beds, playing games with cousins and friends, diving off wooden-plank docks, fishing from the riverbank, being lulled by the rustling breeze or mesmerized by the riffling stream or slapping waves—whatever, these experiences linger in our memories. The homes and camps presented in Cabins are making new memories for today’s families. Some are contemporary homes that incorporate rustic furniture; some are traditional cabins with great rooms and high ceilings. All exude the warmth of wood railings and stone. Engaging, impassioned, and always entertaining, Kylloe has an eye for rustic detail and signature style of photography that makes this, his thirteenth design book, exquisite in every regard. These homes feature idyllic settings for family fun and entertaining, masterfully crafted rock fireplaces and sensual rustic furnishings to covet. Featuring homes across the upper United States, from New England and New York to Montana and Washington.

Vacation cabins are ubiquitous in Norway, with roughly half the population using them on a regular basis. Through analysis of literary representations of cabins, this book demonstrates that while one tends to think of cabin culture as essentially unchanging over a long span of time, it has in fact changed dramatically over the past two centuries, and that it is an extremely rich and complex cultural phenomenon deeply imbedded in the construction of national identity.

Genre: Business & Economics

The issue of aircraft air quality is attracting considerable attention of late, as access to public air travel has expanded exponentially. Aircrew and passengers are increasingly concerned about operating and service decisions that could affect their health, comfort, and safety. The editor of this volume invited a wide range of experts to provide an in-depth treatment of virtually all aspects of aircraft cabin air quality. The topics are covered at a level comprehensible to all who fly as well as being of sufficient depth to be informative to decision makers concerned with purchase, design, operation, and servicing of passenger aircraft. Topics are grouped under: Control of Aircraft Cabin Air Quality; Possible Effects of Low Humidity, Decreased Outside Air Flows; and Effects of Some Aircraft Malfunctions on Cabin Air Quality. The volume concludes with Air Quality Systems for Related Enclosed Spaces, in which chapters cover air quality in buildings, ships, submarines, and spacecraft, which provide novel approaches potentially applicable to aircraft.
