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.".

Update 2022:

We retired our Ecolog business on the West Coast, and will no longer take orders for new Ecolog Homes. We are leaving this website open for reference and inspiration.


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.
