Learn how to build your own log cabin at the BC School of Log Building

Have you ever dreamed of building your own log cabin? I know I have, and now, that dream can become a reality. 

Stonehouse Woodworks has been building log cabins in Golden, BC, for nine years. Located in the Rocky Mountains, it’s a gorgeous setting for antique and new log buildings.

“I became attracted to log homes while taking care of an off-grid hostel in Powell River,” says instructor Dave Stonehouse. “There were lots of log buildings around, and I was mystified by how they were built. I realized the best way to discover this was to take a course, so I went to one in Ontario. After the course, I began my first log home building job in the Yukon.”

In 2015, Dave and Melanie Stonehouse started their own courses in Golden, BC. The British Columbia School of Log Building is a unique educational opportunity for them to share their knowledge and teach others how to construct log buildings—no prior experience required.

“I want to be able to welcome everybody,” says Dave. “Of course, any background in construction would help, but it’s not necessary.”
