Thank you for your interest in our handcrafted log homes. We hope the following information will be helpful to you.
Norse Log Homes consists of experienced log home builders that specialize in quality handcrafted custom log buildings. Whether you’re interested in a mountaintop log ski chalet, a log cabin on a secluded lake, a unique log office building, a log cabin resort development, or your own dream log home, we can build to suit your needs. Our builders have extensive design and construction experience. Our office and main construction yard is located 5 minutes north of Nanaimo on beautiful Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.
The people at Norse Log Homes have been log builders since 1975. We moved to Vancouver Island in 1984 in order to be located at the source of the world’s best supply of Douglas Fir house logs.
We use select West Coast grown Douglas Fir or Western Red Cedar logs with a mean mid diameter average of twelve inches and a fifteen inch butt diameter. Our logs are hand peeled using the traditional draw knife method, then scribe fitted using notches and lateral groove construction. We are proud of our natural handcrafted log homes. The quality of our homes far surpasses machined log home kits.
We have two construction yards and three 82′ hammerhead cranes located on a total of six acres. Norse Log Homes can hand craft up to forty log homes each year. Your project will be constructed by our highly skilled craftsmen at one of our two Vancouver Island sites. It will then be numbered, disassembled and loaded onto a truck or into a container for shipment to your waiting foundation anywhere in North America or around the world.
Norse Log Homes would be pleased to quote on log package costs from your design sketches. Our log package costs normally run between $50.00 – $60.00 per square foot, depending on the size and complexity of your log work.
We also offer a complete custom design service which can convert your log home sketch into construction plans starting at $1.45 per square foot. This cost is later deducted from your contract price when you decide to build.
