In August 2010, Zach Klein bought a 50 acre patch of land in upstate New York on which to a build cabin and reconnect with nature. He called it Beaver Brook. His friends, former city-dwellers, soon followed, building cabins of their own on the land they shared. CABIN PORN began as an online scrapbook created by the founders of Beaver Brook to collect inspiration for their building projects.
Featuring photos of the most remarkable handmade homes in the backcountry of America, and all over the world, the site has had over 10 million unique visitors, with 350,000 followers on Tumblr. Now Zach Klein, the creator of the site (and a co-founder of Vimeo) goes further into the most alluring images and new getaways, including interior photography and how-to advice for setting up your own quiet place.
With stunning photos of idyllic settings, unique architecture and cozy interiors, CABIN PORN is an invitation to slow down, take a deep breath, and enjoy the beauty and serenity that happens when nature meets simple construction.
