Escapology: Modern Cabins, Cottages and Retreats
By Colin McAllister and Justin Ryan
Escapology awakens you to the possibility of escaping the ‘metropolitan’ lifestyle to lead a secondary, escapist life in a rural idyll. Colin McAllister and Justin Ryan, Scottish interior designers with an obsession with the construction, design and maintenance of all things cabin-related, suggest a gentle change of direction towards a life that is more in harmony with nature. The pair believe that cabin time really does have a positive impact on our health, wellbeing and happiness. In addition to advice, the book features a collection of gorgeous, full colour photographs of classic and contemporary cabins, each accompanied by a design profile and information such as completion year, architect, contractor and notable building materials.
While Escapology is a book suited to dreamers, it is also very much a book for “doers”. McAllister and Ryan’s practical building and design advice, with features such as ‘How to design a cabin on a budget’ and ‘Building from scratch versus a renovation project’, Escapology is packed full of relevant information.
