Building Custom Log Homes Since 1999

Cascade Handcrafted Log Homes was originally founded by Dan Coulter and Markus Dehaas more than 20 years ago. Today the Cascade team includes the industry’s most talented professional logsmiths and scribers. We’re passionate about what we do, and each and every home we produce combines that passion with superior craftsmanship, top materials, and a process that takes each client’s unique hopes and dreams for their custom log home into consideration. The result? Perfection!

We’ve built homes all across Canada, the USA, Europe and Asia.

At Cascade, we build everything from cozy log cabins to palatial log villas.

Clients can select from existing log home floor plans or design their custom projects from scratch. At Cascade Handcrafted Log Homes, we offer a variety of construction styles (from Full Scribe and Chinked to Hybrid or Post & Beam Construction, Timber Frame, and more). We choose only the best materials — premium Canadian quality logs according to the Timber Products Inspections (TPI) grade specs, including Western Red Cedar, Douglas Fir, and Standing Dead Pine — because better logs return their value in thermal performance, maintenance, resale, and aesthetic quality. We can even advise which are the best logs to use for your particular climate.

Log homes are a more environmentally friendly building choice

We believe now, more than ever, a log home is a responsible option when considering environmental sustainability. This is because 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 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.

Reforestation in British Columbia

B.C. prides itself on being a world leader in growing trees and sustainable forest management and since the reforestation programs began in the 1930s, over 7 billion trees have been planted. On average, about 200 million seedlings are planted each year in British Columbia and in 2014, over 244 million trees were planted, and at least another 240 million trees are planned to be planted in 2015.

Client Testimonials

  • “My wife and I always dreamed about building a log home.  After months researching many different companies we felt very confused and exhausted through the whole process.  Then one day I called Cascade Handcrafted.  Speaking with Markus about our dream home was pleasant and refreshing. No pressure or sales pitch. We knew we found the right builder.  We visited their log yard and ordered our home.  When we received our log home it went together perfectly.  Many people on our site were amazed at the craftsmanship and quality.  Markus and his crew are always available to answer questions and give advice.  Cascade Handcrafted Log Homes and all the crew involved made our dreams come true.  Cheers to Markus, Brian and crew.”

  • “Cascade Handcrafted provided immediate action and assistance to me in a professional and courteous manner during a time when I was struggling with the many processes related to the flood of the Vedder River. Markus and Dan helped to design and create an improved version of my destroyed home. They expedited their services in order to accommodate my needs as a flood survivor and made sure that I was fully satisfied. They have maintained an ongoing professional service and we have developed a good friendship based on trust and quality of service. I would and have recommended Cascade Log Homes to anyone looking for a quality log home combined with professional, knowledgeable and courteous staff.”
