US to Canadian Exchange on Log Homes
Cascade Handcrafted Log & Timber Homes has built log homes, lodges and cabins for many clients in the United States from Alaska to the Southern States. From cozy cabins with 500 to 1,500 sq. ft. floor plans to luxury lodges like Flying Horse Ranch in the Mountains of Colorado or Spyglass Lodge in Georgia.
The lower Canadian Dollar creates huge savings for American customers that use US currency: Recently the Canadian dollar dropped below 80 cents US. This translates into significant economic benefits for everything from log home design to finishing materials exported from Canada. Just as an example, a log home package that costs $200,000.00 Canadian, would cost approximately $158,719.00 US based on the exchange at 1 Canadian Dollar being equal to 0.79 US dollars.
Now is a very attractive time for Americans to consider building handcrafted Western Red Cedar log homes. Not only does it have a stunning beauty, the many benefits of Western Red Cedar include that it’s a highly revered, durable wood is naturally resistant to rot, decay and insect attacks.
