Canada’s Log People Inc. stands in the forefront when it comes building handcrafted log and timber homes.
Company owner and president, Theo Wiering, founded “The Log People” in 1978 and has been dedicated to building the finest log buildings possible. Over 1400 log buildings shipped worldwide!
Our handcrafted log and timber homes are built primarily with Engelmann Spruce, Douglas Fir, Lodgepole Pine, and Western Red Cedar. The logs we use are an average of 12 to 20 inches in mean diameter, and the tight-grained timber is between 80 and 400 years old.
We put a high priority on sustainable forestry; Canada’s Log People harvests timber from designated forestry areas in British Columbia, which are then replanted with five saplings for every harvested tree. We put back what nature gave us. 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.
In 2009, while in Norway to assemble a log home, Theo visited a heritage site that had several log buildings built by the Scandinavians around the 13th century. Only hand tools such as adzes and broad axes were used to craft the spruce logs into place. Today we use current techniques for fitting and modern chainsaws.
To help put your ideas on paper, our drafting & design team has over 60 years of combined experience using the latest computer software.
Our mission statement is “Built with Quality and Pride”. A handcrafted log or timber home is solid, warm, and comfortable, and 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. We thank you for your interest.
