What’s Unique About the Ecolog Concept ?

The secret of Ecolog custom log homes lies in their simplicity and roots in pioneer construction techniques. The square timbers allow efficient production and construction and avoid many challenges faced by building with round logs. The resulting product is a traditional log home, unpretentious and rustic, yet full of charm and appeal.


The Ecolog Advantage

EcoLog Wall Detail

Ecolog homes combine traditional custom log home construction and design techniques with modern applications, producing a home that will stand the test of time. The final product is delivered in form of a log home package.

Ecolog Homes represent a new style of log homes: These buildings are solid wood log homes, that differ from traditional round log homes or timber frame structures in several ways:

  • The solid walls are constructed from 8x8 inch square timbers, not from round logs
  • Square timbers are much easier to produce and work with... this makes Ecolog homes very affordable
  • The "Ecolog Look" is derived from the combination of the alternating 2 inch insulation and 8 inch timbers, giving Ecolog log buildings a very unique and attractive, natural appearance
  • Ecolog log home packages are available from Western Hemlock, Douglas Fir or Western Red Cedar. All our timbers are harvested from sustainable second growth forests on Vancouver Island.
  • All our building kits include our energy performance modeling service, to make sure that your home is as energy efficient as possible.

I love that EcoLog uses logs from forests recognized for sustainability. Choosing EcoLog offered us the design flexibility of a custom home at an affordable price.

Greg MacDonald, Tobermory

I really like your design, I think it is a nice balance of rustic and modern, and includes nice clean lines and brightness.

Viewed your show home and am totally impressed. I have decided this is what I will build when my property is ready. Thank you Hermann, these homes are amazing.

Lori Lelonde, Victoria BC

Hermann was extremely helpful in every aspect of our project; from assisting us source trades people, assessing the lay of our land, discussing foundation options, to working our way through the sometimes onerous task of fulfilling our municipality’s building permit requirements. Hermann made the whole process not only enjoyable but enlightening, and I would highly recommend him to anyone contemplating building a kit home.
