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.
Martin, who has been a “chippy” all his life and has built many homes and finishing carpentry using the Western Australian Jarrah and Karri timbers, was so impressed by the beautiful western red cedar, the hand peel and latewood finishes, and the highly skilled Cascade team.
“I am absolutely blown away by the beauty of the log homes and the skills of the Cascade craftsman. These guys are incredible and in my professional opinion, their skills are so very rare, I could stay here all day and just be in awe. The way they use all their tools and saws, the joinery, and the gorgeous smell of cedar.”
