Aiming high for 2014

Happy New Year to everybody.
We, at, are looking forward to a very exciting year.

Overall, since we started, we have had tremendous feedback, and it is fantastic to see how people and contractors are interested in simple, cost effective, “Green”, healthy and high efficient housing.


We have been in contact with several Trappeur Log Home owners here in our area and we have had nothing  but very positive feedback in how their homes (some are 20 years of age) perform and function, and how they visually stand out amongst other homes. The feedback from Realtor’s too, is nothing but positive, with statements that our homes are selling faster then others due the timeless design, craftsmanship and quality.

We will be posting a testimonial page on our website soon.


Our philosophy is that “good look”, “Green”, top craftsmanship and high efficiency does not have to come at an astronomical price.


Kootenay Business Magazine has featured Trappeur Homes in the January 2014 issue. We are very happy with the article, and it is well worth the read.

We have also come a long way with our “open/breathable” wall system and our new vapor barrier. The Regional District of the East Kootenays welcomed our approach and we currently have an engineer working on the legality to have it approved for BC and Alberta.

We are looking forward to the next few months as it will be very exciting to get the first couple of buildings off the ground as soon spring arrives.
