EcoLog Homes, located in Ontario’s Haliburton Highlands, is a provider of hemlock log home kits. Timber is generated from the 70,000 acre privately-owned Haliburton Forest & Wild Life Reserve Ltd., Canada’s first FSC certified, sustainable forest.
There is nothing like the warm ambiance and enduring quality of a log home. EcoLog Homes combine traditional design features with state-of-the-art assembly techniques. They boast steep pitched roofs, spacious lofts and heavy timber construction. These are combined to meet modern engineering requirements and maintain time-honoured, traditional design features, providing that unique, unpretentious, log home appeal.
EcoLog Homes are custom-designed and green, yet affordable, comparable in price to conventional frame construction.
"We contacted EcoLog and were treated fairly and honestly and never once felt lost in the sometimes overwhelming and confusing process of home design and build. Eighteen months later we have a beautiful northern getaway that will be enjoyed by family and friends for years to come."
"EcoLog has allowed us to custom design a beautiful cottage that blends in nicely with the surrounding terrain. While not everyone would or should self build as I did, the end product is a warm, solid home that provides a unique base to enjoy the water and forest with the wildlife right outside our door."
"... the warmth of the wood throughout all of the seasons is what has impressed us and everyone who visits the most. Most peoples' favourite expression when they first walk in, no matter what time of year it is, 'this place simply seems to wrap itself around you'."
"I love that EcoLog uses logs from a forest recognized for its sustainability practices. Choosing EcoLog also offered the design flexibility of a custom home but at an affordable price."
