A log home is a responsible option when considering environmental sustainability. A log building that incorporates great design, build and maintenance will easily last for several generations, many homes are still in service 60 and more years after construction. This time span more than allows the forest to regenerate the materials harvested to create the original. Our custom built Cascade Handcrafted Log and Timber Homes naturally don’t require as much synthetic material as conventional construction, reducing the industrial footprint of pollution, energy consumption and waste. Log homes can be easier to heat, using less energy too which is always good for you and the environment. If you would like more information, please contact us.
Clients can select from existing log home floor plans or design their custom projects from scratch. At Cascade Handcrafted Log and Timber Homes, we offer a variety of construction styles (from Full Scribe and Chinked to Hybrid or Post & Beam Construction, Timber Frame, and more). At Cascade Handcrafted Log and Timber Homes, we choose only the best materials — premium Canadian quality logs include Western Red Cedar, Douglas Fir, and Standing Dead Pine — because better logs return their value in thermal performance, maintenance, resale, and aesthetic quality. Our handcrafted experts can advise which are the best logs to use for your particular climate.
