At Coast Mountain Log Homes, quality is our first priority. We start with only the finest building logs available.  All logs are air-dried then hand peeled using only a drawknife. Each log is then hand selected by our master builder for straightness and uniform diameter. We do not use bent logs or logs that have too much taper. Each log is then scribe fitted to the log below, ensuring a weather tight seal. Our log homes do not require chinking. All corners are joined using the "saddle" notch or the full Norwegian notch.

What people are saying about Coast Mountain Log Homes:


Grouse Mountain Resorts, North Vancouver BC,

 “Grouse Mountain has worked with Coast Mountain Log Homes on a variety of projects here at the Peak of Vancouver over the years.  Many of their great finished products are well-known icons for our guest all over the mountain including the official Grouse Grind timer, ski signs outside the Chalet and the arch at the entrance to our Terrain Park.  We enjoy a great relationship with Coast Mountain Log Homes and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their fine craftsmanship to anyone looking for eye-catching, memorable and distinctive pieces for their business.”  

Sarah Lusk, Grouse Mountain Resort



Ken and Florence Shannon,  Huntsville Alabama

 “My wife and I began work with Darwin at the very beginning of our log home construction process.  Even before we had house plans approved we spoke with and visited Darwin in Vancouver.  Darwin was very helpful during all stages of design and construction.  Even though we were unable to make another trip to Vancouver during the construction process, Darwin sent complete sets of pictures each week detailing all progress of the log shell.   Finally the day arrived and on-site construction began.  Darwin had the process organized with detailed instructions.  Darwin and Gabe stayed at our home during the week long log stack and we had a wonderful time.  Having both Darwin and Gabe there during both construction phases was a highlight of the process.  The home turned out to be even more than we first envisioned.  The quality of construction, the process, and the log stack support was all as Darwin had said it would be at the very beginning of our search for a log provider.  We couldn’t be more pleased and happily move forward with a beautiful home and lifelong friendships.

 Ken and Florence Shannon, Huntsville Alabama


 Kevin Kehoe,  Anchorage Alaska

 “Darwin Forcier and the Team at Coast Mountain Log Homes did an excellent job throughout the process of building my dream cabin.  I selected Coast Mountain after seeing the quality of two of their homes and discussing them with their owners and after checking the prices of more than a half-dozen of their competitors. During the design phase Darwin made recommendations and priced various options.  They constructed the cabin at their building lot in Vancouver and welcomed my visits – answering questions and tweaking the package.  Darwin assisted with arranging for delivery and traveled to Alaska personally to supervise the assembly at my site 100 miles north of Anchorage.  Coast Mountain is easy to work with, well priced, takes great pride in their product, and is always ready to go the extra distance to ensure satisfaction”. 

 Kevin J. Kehoe, Anchorage Alaska


Sonja and Eric Zinke, Canaan Connecticut

 “Twelve years ago my Husband and I contacted Darwin of Coast Mountain Log Homes to inquire about his craft and we began our journey into the world of log homes. Not all log homes are the same and we feel Coast Mountain Log Homes are the best. The service and attention we received 3,000 miles away while the logs were being fit together was impressive and the log home was exceptional. We recommend Coast Mountain Logs Homes to anyone who demands the finest.”
