LOVELAND, Colo., Sept. 21 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — PixyJack Press, a Colorado independent publisher, announces an upcoming book signing with two log-home book authors, Roland Sweet and Rex A. Ewing, at the Denver Log & Timber Home Show on Saturday, October 2, 2010.

Industry insider Roland Sweet reveals 30 steps to success in his newly released book, “Log Home Secrets of Success: An Insider’s Guide to Making Your Dream Home a Reality” (ISBN: 978-0-9773724-7-8, $22.95, PixyJack Press).

While living in a log home is a dream for thousands of people, the buying-and-building process can be complicated, confusing and often filled with contradiction. Now homeowners can find the answers they need, from designing a log home and selecting a log-home producer to evaluating log packages and calculating costs. Plus they’ll get real-world advice on what to look for when buying land, making energy-wise decisions, the importance of assembling a team that shares your vision, working with a builder and much more.

Author Roland Sweet is the editor-in-chief of Log Home Living magazine, which he helped launch in 1989. Over the years he has also has been editor of Log Homes Illustrated, Timber Homes Illustrated and Distinctive Wood Homes.

“After 20 years of talking to the owners of existing log homes, I realized that too many people who really wanted log homes were being thrown off track by the complexity of obtaining their dream,” says Roland Sweet. “I wrote this book to cut through the confusion that discourages them and explain what really matters and what doesn’t so they can confidently move from wanting a log home to getting one.”

Author Rex A. Ewing will also be on hand to answer questions and autograph his book, “Crafting Log Homes Solar Style: An Inspiring Guide to Self-Sufficiency” (ISBN: 978-0-9773724-4-7, $25.00, PixyJack Press). This popular title combines the how-to of handcrafting a log home with modern renewable energy technologies.

“The natural heat-regulating properties of logs combined with good passive solar design give log homes an edge when it comes to using solar electricity, geothermal energy, solar water heating and other green energy technologies,” says Ewing. “Whether it is an off-grid weekend log cabin or a full-time log home, homeowners across the country are discovering that comfortable log home living and energy self-sufficiency go hand in hand.”

Ewing’s other renewable energy titles, “Power with Nature” and “Got Sun? Go Solar,” will also be available.
