Welcome to Canada's Log People!
We have been Handcrafting Log Homes for over 34 years!
Our homes are built primarily with Engelmann Spruce, Douglas Fir and Lodgepole Pine, although we use Western Red Cedar on occasion. The logs we use are an average of 12-16 inches in mean diameter, and the tight-grained timber is between 80 and 140 years old. We put a high priority on sustainable forestry; Canada's Log People selectively harvests its own timber from designated forestry areas, which are then replanted within two years. We put back what nature gave us. The majority of our log harvesting is done in the winter when the sap is down. The logs are then air-dried through the year to a desired moisture content of 20 percent or less. As a further measure of quality, over 95 percent of our timber meets the highest premium/select grade standard of the Timber Products Inspection grading agency.
We provide a 40-page construction and maintenance manual for our valued clients when they confirm an order with us.
A handcrafted home built by Canada's Log People will be a source of pride and
satisfaction for many years to come. Let us or one of our professional
representatives make your dream home become a reality.
