We offer you carefully designed and constructed
White Cedar Log Homes, entirely to your personal
desire and ideas.

We can also offer complete and turnkey home packages.

Wether you are looking for a log home, cottage, or weekend hideaway, please have a good look at what we can do.

The ability to customize and further develop your plans and ideas is one of the advantages of an ATLANTIC CANADA LOG HOMES INC. home package.

The design of your log home is limited only by your imagination and your budget!

We can create a log home from your own design or a plan from another source, or from a combination of both.

If you need any assistance with your floor plan, we can “Custom-design” that for you as well. We and our very experienced draftsmen will work closely with you to assure that your new home exactly meets your needs.

Why settle for someone else’s dream home when you can have your own dream home built to your individual specifications?

We are able to supply you with either just a weather-tight-shell package, or completely finish your home and offer a turnkey package.

After you have selected your plans and have made a final decision on the house plan and the material package, you can have the added comfort of knowing that the log home will be built by your ATLANTIC CANADA LOG HOME team and it’s partners, to your full satisfaction.

Together with our Partners/Sub-contractors, ATLANTIC CANADA LOG HOMES INC. can offer you Project Management and be your General Contractor for the whole project and provide and price the following other services to you!

This system offers the beauty of the round log profile inside as well as on the outside.

 

The following Log profiles and sizes are available:

Round logs in 6, 7 or 8 inches diameter.

Northern White Cedar is easy to work with and because of its density, can be precision milled.

It has: Superior R-value, 1.41 per inch of thickness. This is one of the highest of any wood species used in log homes. Superior resistance against rot, mold and fungus.

Northern White Cedar shrinks much less than other woods. Precision milling of air-dried high quality White Cedar Logs keep shrinking and settling to a minimum, less than 1 inch over an 8 foot wall. Of course special building techniques allow for any shrinking or settling.

In the final, for ease of construction, each log is precisely pre-cut and pre-drilled to your plan specifications.

No cutting is required on the building site. All logs are numbered in accordance with the plan specifications for your particular home..
