Cascade Handcrafted Log Homes

Nestled in the eastern corner of Chilliwack by scenic Bridal Falls, lies the industrious Cascade Handcrafted Log Homes. For over 20 years, spectacular residences of all sizes have been created around the world, from Canada, the USA, Europe and Asia.

The Cascade crew provides an indigenous verve in the realm of creativity.  You feel the heart and soul poured into each project, everyone involved leaving their signature and innovative workmanship in the residences they produce.  The end result is a customized product; unique and stunning, to be resided in and passed on to future generations.

If you envision a home that melds into the forest, or spreads out onto acreage, the components of your home will always be environmentally friendly.  By cutting down on man-made materials versus woods’ natural beauty, we keep the world a greener place to live. Our experienced Architects and Autocad designers can modify an existing floor plan or give you a completely custom floor plan tailored specifically to your requirements.

Trendy choices include: White Pine; distinguished by its pungent aroma and distinctive light coloration.  Red Cedar provides coppery-red hues and tapered, strutted bases, forming the focal points in great rooms and entrance ways.  Animal, bird and plant shapes pleasantly morph themselves into the homes’ interior and exterior construction, signifying the crews’ hidden talents and relentless goal for a prime finished product.
