Dear Keith, Colin, Shane, Lonnie & Cliff,
I am still in shock and overwhelmed by the log structure that is now sitting on our land. Having dreamed a lifetime, I was not prepared for the reality of such a beautiful thing. The creative touches, artistic style and character log accents that I had hoped for – but had no specific idea for –make our new home unique to us and drop dead gorgeous! We designed an open floor plan but did not want to lose that feeling of comfort. Your log builders created just what we wanted for our “last ever” home.
I can’t say enough wonderful things about Lonnie & Cliff. They worked hard
without breaks for hours and hours – one day 12 hours, and another over 13 hours. They came in with a smile and left with a smile, which had to be tough after putting up with us and all of our friends & family hanging around, trying to “help” and probably mostly in the way! When there were problems, they tackled it and fixed it; they kept the building going from dawn to dusk. I can’t believe they could keep such great attitudes and still work so hard. They were a great addition to our log-raising experience and we will always remember them fondly!
In all the excitement, I don’t think I really told Cliff how much wenappreciated the name plaque and lovely waxed wood serving bowl. We brought them both back to the old house to use and keep safe – until we can mount the plaque.
Thank you for keeping the delivery “on time.” We planned our date a year ago and somehow everything came together as planned – we had to rush at the end because of some sub-contractor delays, and you were probably to the wire on time as well. The on-time delivery is just another plus in our experience with CMLH.
We will send a photo or two when we finish the exterior and please feel free to stop by ANY time to see the house.
Yours, with much appreciation,
Dale & Sue Barham

You guys are the best! Your team has impressed us from the moment we first talked with you and Shane at the 2003 Denver Log Home Show to the moment you erected our log home in July, 2004.
As we worked with you through the process of building our dream home, we found Chilliwack Mountain Log Homes to be: professional, quality conscious, courteous, knowledgeable, and timely cost competitive.
You suggested several minor changes to our house that were excellent. In addition, we really appreciate the way you followed up whenever we had any questions; we would usually receive a call back within hours.
While some log home customers may have money to burn, we needed to be cost-conscious. Your log shell package included more extras (log stairs, assembled log railing and cedar bells) than several competitors at a far better price. In fact, when performing an apples-to-apples comparison, we realized a ten to forty percent savings over several other competitors.
And the highest compliment we can pay you is not from us at all; specifically, our framing crew said “The people who built this log home are fantastic. It is a real pleasure to frame, when you can follow-up after true professional log builders.”. The commented on all the detailed cuts in thelogs, flooring, roofing, decking, electrical, etc. The quality of the craftsmanship in our log home is second-to-none!
If any potential customers want to discuss any issues with one of your previous customers, please give them our name and number. We would be happy to endorse Chilliwack Mountain Log Homes. However, if they stop by and see our house we won’t need to say a thing; our log home is the best advertising you could ever have.

I am in such awe of how beautiful it is!
Dear Keith and Colin:
We can’t believe it’s been almost a year since the log set. We had given up on a log cabin until we talked with Colin and he assured us we could get the logs up the mountain. Thank you for getting our dream to us. Here are some photos from start until now. We had a great time going back through the pictures and remembering what a fun time we had. Our whole crew would say at the end of the day they had never worked so hard and had such a good time.
We will send pictures as we get the inside done. We wanted to thank you again for the super job you did on the cabin. From the first time we talked with you and through the entire process of log set you guys were fantastic. Even now when I call you with questions you are so helpful. Every time we walk up to the cabin I am in such awe of how beautiful it is. I knew it was going to be really cool but it is just awesome! Thank you so much. Be sure to send anyone that is in Arizona to see us, we love to show it off.

It’s been a pleasure -on behalf of the Muller’s.

My friends from Log Homes Canada,
It is my distinct pleasure to write this “Thank you” letter to express our sincere gratitude for making our dream come true in delivering to our family a beautifully crafted log home
As you know, this day has been a long time coming and is a result of years of research before we even choose to entrust your company to build our dream log home. One thing I took note of while doing our due diligence in choosing a log home manufacturer, and truly made Log Homes Canada out from other log home companies, was the number of previous customers I found that talked about the great TRUST they had in Colin and the rest of the Log Homes Canada staff. I found a perfect example of this trust when I actually travelled to meet with a rancher who had just built a log home with Log Homes Canada and he told me that the whole deal to produce his home was done by a “firm handshake”. While touring his home, his pride of ownership was very evident in the way that he showed me the attention to detail that Log Homes Canada took in building his dream home.
As I look back on the whole process of building our log home, I can echo those remarks from my own experience with Colin and his team. I first met Colin and Shane when I travelled to Chilliwack to tour his construction yard in the spring of 2009. I was immediately impressed with how the Log Homes Canada team worked as a family unit and also with the quality of their log homes that were being built in the yard. “Open” and “Honest” are two keywords that stick out in my mind from my first impressions of Colin and Shane. Sometimes in life you can sense when something is “just right” and I can honestly say that I knew right away that Log Homes Canada was the perfect company to build my family’s dream log home. In continuing my due diligence, I later met with, and toured the construction yards, of other log home companies prior to making our final decision on which company to give our business to. I can tell you that all fell short in the standard that was set by Log Homes Canada.
During the building process, I was unfortunately out of the country and therefore not around to assist in any way. Colin and his team went “above and beyond”, and truly made the whole experience a smooth and stress free experience. My wife and I were constantly updated with emails and pictures of the building process and the final product exceeded our expectations. Considering that I had VERY high expectations, that statement says a great deal. We were blown away with how everyone at Log Homes Canada worked overtime to complete our home on time while dealing with some extreme weather conditions in Chilliwack over the winter months. I was incredibly grateful with how much care, and attention to detail, the crew put into our home.
In closing, I want to express to anyone who is considering building a log home to take a very close look at Log Homes Canada. My wife and I feel blessed to have had our dream log home built by such a caring organization and we will now enjoy a lifetime of friendship with the Log Homes Canada team that has been formed through this process. I wish each of you great success in the building of your dream home.
