Our latest software and powerful computer hardware allow us to virtually build a 3D model of your future home. We are then able to produce high quality 3D movies and animations of your future home using a program called BIMx .  This powerful visual tool allows you to “visit” your home inside and out. which gives you the ability to make all of the right decisions concerning your home. Therefore, YOU are in control instead of being in the dark during the design process.

Our Plan of the Month: Kars

This 2428 sq/ft log home is being built by Heartwood log homes from Nova Scotia on a beautiful location on an ocean inlet close to St John New Brunswick.  Customer worked for 10 years on the room layout they wanted.  We stayed very close to what they dreamt about for so long.  Ended up being a very cute, cozy log home with a large loft and storage room at second floor.  Basement has a couple of extra bedrooms for guests.  The construction style has some Atlantic provinces features like the low pitch shed roof at end of master gable to further protect the logs from wind driven rain.
I will have pics of the log shell this fall to share with all.
