snow covered log home


It’s stronger than us, this holiday season we can’t help but wish you peace, and happiness, but also all the warmth, refinement, and beauty of wood for this year, and the years to come.

As 2023 ends and snow and winter slowly settle in, our team is proud of all the work accomplished, and we are grateful for the trust of our customers.

It’s time to take stock of the end of the year and prepare for 2024. Our resolutions for the months to come?

1. Continue our quest for excellence in the field of round wood and traditional carpentry

Our company’s mission is to highlight and celebrate the contribution and importance of wooden construction. The benefits of building a wooden house are so great. The impact on the environment is just as important. This is why we want to continue to highlight the positive impact of our constructions.

By choosing to build a wooden house, you are making an ecological choice. Wood acts as a structure, insulation, and finish. It replaces polluting materials while providing effective insulation, a magnificent look, and a service to the planet.

As it is a local and renewable resource, the ecological footprint of your wooden house or chalet construction is significantly reduced.

We celebrate the contribution of log homes to the environment.

2. Continue to dazzle yourself by creating your dream chalets, while keeping yourself adequately informed

A few years ago, we took the time to share with you four tips for
four tips for making the most of winter in your log home
. Looking back on this, it is clear that although time has passed, our recommendations are still the same. Winter is the perfect time to heat your home, ensure you maintain adequate ambient humidity, and add light here and there to combat the grayness of shorter days. But beyond these obvious facts, we suggest that you cultivate gratitude. This year again, gratitude is of capital importance to us.

We are always so happy to see the smiles on our customers’ faces when they discover their wooden house or carpentry chalet project, after months of waiting. We hope to have the pleasure of meeting you during an appointment to help you set up your project if you have not yet chosen your log or carpentry house contractor. Our joy is to build for you while providing you with the knowledge necessary to fully appreciate your investment.

3. Pushing the limits of our Scandinavian log home construction technique and carpentry technique for quality products.

Each of our log home creations is the result of many hours of work. We have big ambitions and are not content to just build. We build with rigor, with professionalism, and we intend to continue learning to improve our techniques.

Our President, David, shared the importance of continuous improvement, technology, and innovation at Harkins during our 20th anniversary in the log homes business. His words remain most relevant and continue to guide us. Advancing our work to offer you a quality product continues to motivate us!

Do not hesitate to consult our tips for successfully implementing a log or timberframe house, to better understand how you too can contribute to improving the work we have started at your home.

4. Continue to have as much pleasure in serving you, while sharing advice for log homes and timberframe houses!

We can never say it enough, our customers are important to us. Past, present, and future customers. Our team has a lot of fun drawing, imagining, designing, and building your homes.

We also realize that there is so much to learn about this type of residency. Whether by sharing ideas to make your log house unique or information to ensure optimal maintenance of the log or timberframe house, we hope to fulfill our mission with you!

Once again, we’d like to offer you our best wishes for the holiday season.  We’ll be off from December 22 to January 14, 2024, returning on January 15, 2024.  We hope to see you soon!
