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.
We are building this beautiful Post and Beam Latewood cabin, which is destined for Lake Kawartha in Northern Ontario. The design is unique in shape as it resembles more of a diamond than your traditional square or rectangle
Cascade Handcrafted Log Homes worked with this private property owner to selectively harvest and clean up some windfall after our bout of BC’s fall and early spring windstorms. Selective harvesting the western red cedar trees allows the light to shine through and give the undergrowth and new trees a chance to thrive
This uniquely stunning home was built for an equally unique family in Wyoming, it was built using 15-17- 20″ average Western Red Cedar with a “Latewood Finish”. The Latewood finish is very much different than the traditional drawknife finish that most everyone associates log homes with.
Cascade Handcrafted Log Homes built a beautiful log shell for a client at our work yard in Chilliwack, British Columbia. After the home was complete we added a car port to finish off this stage of the project, which was inspected by the client before we dismantled the home, loaded it onto trailers and shipped it to Terrace, B.C.
