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.
This is the project we are currently working on in Washington State. It’s unique in that the traditional cross corners have been replaced by large cedar flared posts. The house is designed to be non-settling to minimize any shrinkage.
We’re currently working on a unique home for our customer in Washington state designed by RCM CAD Design.
The shape is unlike any traditional home in that the hexagon shape featuring a spacious open floor plan plays a little trick on the eyes as though the log walls just flow into one another.
We’ve been working on a beautiful Latewood Post and Beam construction project for a couple’s lake front property in Northern Ontario! The logs for this home have been individually chosen and hand fallen through a process called “Selective Harvesting” to ensure future forest growth, sustaining the environment for wildlife.
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
We’re getting set to build this gorgeous Western Red Cedar hybrid home for a wonderful family in New Jersey. Thanks to the RCM CAD design team in creating this unique plan.
