Although these kits are still available today, new designs range from tiny cabins to full-size opulent homes that include a double-car garage. The milling process is now state-of-the-art, and the logs are uniformly produced in various lengths, sizes and profiles (D-shaped, flat, square, rectangular or round) to suit any taste, budget or floor plan.
Many of the more recently built round log homes are sumptuously designed with large rooms, open floor concepts and panoramic windows. These are built using the Scandinavian method. As the name suggests, this building technique has its roots in the Scandinavian countries and is popular the world over. One of the most visually impressive characteristics attributed to this style is the extended interlocking outer and inner saddle-notch wall corners and the size of the hand-stripped logs used, up to 122 centimetres in diameter and larger. Often equipped with the latest technologies in terms of comfort, with country-themed furnishings, the interior decor in these luxurious homes is the embodiment of rustic chic.
Offering breathtaking scenery and year-round activities, “La Belle Province” more than lives up to its name.
