Using only luxury materials and sourcing some of the world’s most unique exotic skins, the’ve been creating thousands of one-of-a-kind custom boots popular with A-list actors, filmmakers, country music stars, politicians, and fashionistas from around the world.

These distinctive boots are also highly sought after not just because of their exquisite designs, but also for their modern innovations—such as using Vibram soles, a line of ankle-hugging short boots with side zippers, and the ability for customers to customize their boots with their own designs.

Their craftsmen preserve the spirit of the Old West by using handcrafting techniques handed down from generation to generation to create homes that are as unique and beautiful as the Rocky Mountains from which they come.
General Contractor Dennis Cozzetti summed up the craftsmanship of Kalispell Montana Log Homes: “… impressed is an understatement. While I have done a number of log cabins with different companies, none even come close to the outstanding product that Kalispell Montana Log Homes delivers. It’s like comparing a Ferrari to a Volkswagen…” These amazing log structures have been delivered from Presque Isle, Maine to Heaven’s Landing in Georgia and from Big Bear Lake, California to Valdez, Alaska, and all points in between.

Canada’s Log People Inc.
Canada’s Log People Inc. stands in the forefront when it comes to building handcrafted luxury lodge homes 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 1,400 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 and 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.
