The recent drop in oil prices has pushed the Canadian dollar down to a five-year low, which is good news for Americans thinking about handcrafted Canadian log homes.
Cascade Handcrafted Log Homes in Chilliwack, BC has built custom-built log homes for many clients in the United States, ranging from cozy cabins with 500 to 1,500 sq. ft. floor plans to luxury lodges like Flying Horse Ranch in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado or Spyglass Lodge in Georgia.
The lower Can$ creates huge savings right now for our American customers: Recently the Canadian loonie dropped below 79 cents US, the lowest level for the Canadian dollar since March 2009. This translates into significant economic benefits for everything from log home design to finishing materials exported from Canada.
Now is a very attractive time for Americans to consider building handcrafted Western Red Cedar log homes. If you’ve ever considered log home kits or log home plans, contact our friendly staff to learn more about our process.
Clients are welcome to choose from our existing log home floor plan designs or opt for custom design plans.
