We all want a place to retreat to after a long day, somewhere to spend a long weekend where we can take our gear, and truly enjoy the great outdoors. And nothing says ‘getaway’ like a log cabin. True North Log Homes embodies their mantra: “Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away.” True North provides their customers with stunning log homes, AND the peace of mind that comes with owning an eco-friendly and energy efficient home (without compromising any of the luxuries of modern day). As a testimony to their technology, they are the only log home company in the industry willing to offer a 25-Year “Zero” Air Infiltration Warranty, via their patented fastening system, which actually ratchets itself tighter as the logs naturally shrink, eliminating the need for any chinking or manual tightening.
Log homes themselves are environmentally friendly – wood’s thermal mass characteristics often exceed minimum energy efficiency code criteria, and are naturally renewable. True North takes this even further by obtaining their wood from environmentally sustained forests, and they pride themselves on being Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified – in fact they’ve been doing business with the same family that harvests the logs for over 40 years, two generations harvesting and re-planting the forests.
The Wrightman family, founders and owners of True North Log Homes, is very passionate about continuing to improve on the energy efficiencies of the homes they build. This demonstrates True North Log Homes’ interest in and awareness of environmental and social standards within the international market, and the importance of enabling consumers and businesses to make purchasing decisions that benefit the environment. True North Log Homes has built a brand that is ecologically mindful of the building processes, products and equipment used, so homeowners can truly enjoy their log home, stress-free.
The company is based in Bracebridge, Ontario and provides custom log home design and construction for primary and vacation homes around the world. Their log homes range from small Bunkie and Pictou cabins to luxurious ski cabins perched on the side of a mountain, or a home lakeside. They have multiple exclusive design, energy, and building patents, all of which literally create the most technologically advanced log home on the planet.
