About EcoLog Homes

Ecolog Homes in Victoria is owned and operated by Hermann Thoene. Hermann founded Ecolog Homes in 2008 to bring these beautiful square log homes to the west coast. In January 2010 the company was incorporated, and the full official name is "Vanisle Ecolog Homes Inc.".

The building kits delivered to our customers are produced in partnership with Cowichan Lake Timber Ltd, a well recognized sawmill in Lake Cowichan on Vancouver Island. We use second growth wood from sustainably managed Vancouver Island forests.

 

EcoLog Homes Background

The EcoLog Home concept has been developed in 1996 by EcoLog Building Concepts, a Canadian company located in the Haliburton Highlands of Ontario. Ecolog Homes are very popular in the Haliburton highlands, and more then 100 homes have been built as cottages, residences and for various commercial applications.

EcoLog Homes for the eastern part of Canada are produced in Haliburton, Ontario, and customers in the western part of Canada can get their homes from Vanisle Ecolog Homes on Vancouver Island.
