When most people typically envisage a log home, the tendency is to think of days gone past in the old west with an oil lamp shining in the window for light. Possibly, even a cabin hidden away in a European forest with rustic properties. It is true that you can still find these old gems, but the reality is that log homes have come a long way since those days.
Sure, there are cabins that are retreats for folks looking to escape the city life and just take a break from life for a few weeks a year, but more and more are taking the step to leave these cities behind and move to a more serene and peaceful existence surrounded by nature.
You may be looking to retire or just looking for a different life style that can function at a different pace, as there is nothing like hearing the sound of rain or the birds singing in the morning, next to a peaceful lake or forest in a beautiful new log home that is yours.
Today, a log home is a completely different concept and as customizable and as individual as you are.
At Cascade Handcrafted Log & Timber Homes we can help guide you through the choices available and build that dream home for you.
Log Homes are not constructed like the traditional houses that you may be living in currently, as they are made from either milled or hand crafted douglas fir or western red cedar. They are harder to put together, so this is not an over night process.
Think about the look and style that you want; are you taking into account how many bedrooms or do you want a top floor which is open to below, or a huge wall of windows to allow the maximum of light inside, 2 garages or possibly a wrap-around deck. All of this is possible and so much more and is typically limited to your creativity and budget.
We build these beautiful log homes on a daily basis and if you have any questions, we are here for you.
