In my book Log Homes of Quebec, you’ll discover several pièce sur pièce log homes from the 1800s, and more recently built round log homes of various styles. While some homes are used as primary residences, others are holiday getaways and weekend retreats. Although most of the homes are located in bucolic and secluded surroundings in various regions of Quebec, a few are situated on residential streets.
Many of the older pièce sur pièce log homes were reconstructed from two or more original homes that were purchased in one region, taken apart, then transported to a new site to be reassembled as one residence. In many instances, the new owners themselves erected these old homes with help from family members and friends, or from skilled craftsmen.
