WELCOME TO BC LOG CABINS Inc.
In the fall of 2014, BC Log Cabins supplied a pre-manufactured cabin to the Kitimat Snowmobile and Hiker's Club to be used as a warming hut and emergency shelter on Robinson Ridge a frequently accessed but remote snowmobiling paradise. The cabin is a dove-tailed 16 x 20 feet with a 16x8 foot covered deck and a 10x16 foot loft and outfitted with wood heat, solar-powered lighting and propane cook facilities. This cabin has been featured in several newspapers and facebook posts and was a special feature in the Winter 2015 issue of Mountain Sledder Magazine.

BC Log Cabins Inc. has been in business since 2007 and built log cabins of various sizes and styles for customers in Alberta, British Columbia, Yukon and the Northwest Territories as well as in the USA and Japan.
BC Log Cabins Inc. is a small business located in Prince George, British Columbia, Canada. We manufacture different models of log cabins and work closely with our customers in designing a cabin according to their ideas and individual needs.
We communicate with our clients on a regular basis from the initial plan to the finished project. We pride ourselves on our personable approach in helping each customer in fulfilling their dream of owning a log cabin.
Our log cabins and cottages are ideal for remote locations, because they can be set up without the need of cranes and special tools. The cabins are custom built out of logs milled from Canadian spruce. Our handcrafted cabins come in sizes from approx. 200 square feet to 1100 square feet and are tailored to the customers’ specifications.
All our cabins and cottages are custom designed!
Effective December 19, 2014, the National Building Code introduced NEW energy efficiency requirements for houses and small buildings (Part 9). These are NEW standards applying to log houses and log cabins.
The change in the building code demands an R-20 plus insulation value for outside log walls for any log structure (houses, cabins and cottages).
Wood has about an R-1 to R-1.2 insulation value per 1 inch wall thickness. In order to comply with the demands of Section 9.36 of the Building Code we introduced an insulated double wall system for our NEW Saddle Notch style log cabins which lets us meet and even exceed the R-20 requirement.
Find out more about the new rules and how our Saddle Notch design combined with insulated double walls will ensure your new cabin will comply with current building codes. Download PDF.

Our NEW Saddle Notch style log cabins consist of milled logs with saddle notch connections. These connections are cut with our new log notching machine.
We will continue building our dove tail cabins for locations where no building permit is needed.
We also offer custom made carports, gazebos, pergolas, timber furniture and other structures.
Dirk Schuirmann, president of BC Log Cabins Inc., and his crew handcraft every piece of the log cabin in our shop according to the customers’ details.
We can build the log cabin or cottage to suit your building site, budget and way of life.
