    “Homes from Home” by Vinny Lee.

“Homes From Home” will take you on a vacation in your mind.
The book, by British journalist Vinny Lee, takes readers on a tour of vacation homes around the world. Included are cabins, treehouses, mobile homes, tents, boats and even getaways made from an old circus wagon and a train car.
There’s a quirky cabin in Sweden that looks like a turtle, a home in Wales that was fashioned from a grain silo and a contemporary shepherd’s hut, built by an owner who was too tall to fit comfortably in a traditional version.
Lee shares these shelters with readers as a source of both diversion and information. She includes plenty of pictures of the getaways and their settings, so readers can enjoy their virtual visit.
But she also gleans practical suggestions from the homes, such as ways to store needed items in limited space and furniture that can withstand punishing beach environments.
“Homes From Home” sells for $40 in hardcover.
