We had a great family of Western Australian visitors come on a tour of The Cascade Handcrafted log yard today. Ruth, Martin and their daughter Rochelle came for a visit to see how our western red cedar log homes are handcrafted. Markus is shown explaining the process involved in building the log homes and Steven is explaining to Ruth the difference between the log finishes.Details
