The Cascade Lodge

The Cascade Lodge is our most popular lodge design, and for good reason. The v-shaped prow lets lots of light in, while still having some super curb appeal and being functional with solar gain in the winter. LowE glass windows keep the sun’s UV rays out, while letting light in. This home typically has larger 10” hand peeled log standard, 8,9” or 12” log walls are available. This is an upgraded model with covered side porches (nice to coffee outside the master suite, and BBQs on the dining side decks). We have lots of combinations for the deck and entry, and can customize this to your liking for free. We priced in a large drive-though portico, so park out of the sun or snow and stay dry, and it also doubles as an awesome entry with giant Hand Crafted entry posts (you can pick your own too!). This can be configured how you like, but here is a 6 bedroom, 3.5 bath home on a daylight basement, and priced as shown, is about $136K for all our package materials. Materials constantly go up, so we bid this home with your custom design, as well as the market and materials at the time of purchase. This home finished ranges from $400K to $550K, including your well, septic, etc, as an approximate turn key estimate, hiring it all out. 3550 square feet of excellence. The best part? Having it worth twice that!
