After almost a year of looking at plans we finally had a good idea of what we wanted.  We decided to engage RCM CAD and Cyril to design our cabin based on the quality of work visible on the web.  If you look closely you will see Cyril and RCM CAD’s work all over the web being used by a number of log builders.  From the very first day Cyril was fabulous to work with.  We were looking to design a relatively small cabin that was both functional on the inside and beautiful on the outside from every direction.  Cyril took our ideas and transformed them into something even better than we dreamed.  We had animated drawings of our plans, mostly complete, in less than a week.  It is amazing how close those very first pictures were to the final product.  I can’t imagine the process going any better than it did and would recommend RCM CAD design to anyone.

Best regards

Dear Cyril, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for assisting us in the design of our home. I must say, initially I was a little hesitant to work with you due to the international border, and not knowing whether or not you would be designing to the requirements / codes of the USA and Colorado. There were however no changes required by my local engineer except those generated at my request. The plans made it through the building department in less than three weeks, which is quick for around here.

I would also like to thank you for going out of your way to meet with Bob our log builder. The fact that you were comfortable with him and pleased with the quality of their work went a long way towards alleviating our concern in deciding to use them. You may not be aware of this, but they are currently up to the second floor joist level. Bob called the other day and was very complimentary of the design. He said that not only have people been stopping in and asking questions, but that his crew is also excited about working on this project.

Lastly, thank you for your patience in working with us and for the speed in which you produced the documents. We made three revisions to the floor plans, and still from start to finish, plans in hand, we were under two months.

When you return to this area, (maybe next years Log Home Show) we would like to invite you to stop and see what you helped create. Of course you might still need a hammer……

It has been a pleasure working with you,

Dear Cyril, Thank you so much for the great job you did designing our future home. You helped us put our dream home together. Your personal attention went above and beyond what we could have expected and we really appreciated your advice and expertise.

Thank you again for getting the job done so quickly. You impressed not only us but our lender who didn’t think it was possible to get from idea to blueprints in such a short amount of time.

Thanks again

Chris and Jayna

Dear Cyril, We received your roof plans for our home. As always, your work is superbly crafted and on time. Thank you for such a professional product.

Along those lines, I have to tell you that I was pouring over our house plans today, coloring in flooring, thinking about final lighting, and basically dreaming about what a wonderful home this is going to be. Contemplating the details of our home, it struck me as to what a fine job you did for us. There is hidden creativity everywhere. The architectural interest that you have designed into this home is simple but at the same time nothing short of majestic. The ridge poles, purlins and trusses you integrated into our ceilings alone will give each room the feeling that the ceiling is floating in air. From the outside the home is so balanced, so symmetrical, that it will appear to have grown there. We can’t wait to move in.

Cyril, I have learned through this process that designing and building a log home is not a simple thing. There are structural and mechanical problems that the solid wall of the log home presents that other types of construction do not encounter. You found simple but astute solutions for plumbing problems, window placement, and roof lines that those who tour our home will never see or truly appreciate. I guess that is the hallmark of a great design.

When choosing a log package provider and designer, we were bombarded with offers. Everybody we talked to had the best logs, the best construction, the best designers. We probably visited 20 homes, either finished or under construction. At one time we must have had 200 pounds of brochures and floor plans! I kid you not, it was almost overwhelming. You have made the process easy, enjoyable, rewarding and FUN!

This will be the last house we ever build. When you build something for the rest of your life, it had better be strong and special. This house will be strongly special.

Thanks for everything.

We had Cyril design our log home for a piece of lakefront property in the Caribou district of British Columbia. The home he designed was creative, reflecting the unique characteristics of the property. He was responsive to our requests and he completed his work in a timely manner. We are very pleased with the final plans.

Dear Cyril:

We just wanted to write to say thank you for all your help and support in designing our log home. As we are living in Japan, we thought it might be a challenge to communicate exactly what we wanted and concerned about the logistics of the whole design process via long distance. We were extremely pleased with the professionalism of your company and staff, and the quick response to all our queries and requests. We have also had great feedback from our log home builder and general contractor who were most impressed with the design and detail of the plans.

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your services to anyone who needed design work for a log home, and especially via long distance.

Thanks once again for everything!

Steve and Kim – Narita, Japan

We would like to let you know that we are all very impressed by the design of the house and the professionalism you treated the whole project. Being so far, in Greece, and doing the whole process through internet, at the beginning we were a little concerned if the process would be successful; but it turned out that it was much smoother, faster and artistic than we ever thought. Especially your treatment of the design to accommodate the height restrictions of the area was impressive. Even more, the design of the concrete basement of the house has been excellent.

Your professionalism and interest towards our project went a little beyond the objectives of your assignment, when you took time to visit and talk to our builder on construction details and we appreciate that.

We would recommend RCM to anybody for three reasons: artistic, engineering and professionalism.

Again thank you and we will keep you updated with pictures.

Best regards

Cyril, Our log home is done and we moved in! It is SOO beautiful and your design was brilliant. I’ve attached a few photos for you and feel free to use them. We made a few minor changes to the final design:

Thanks for all of your design work on our dream home.

Best regards

John & Hollie – Washington State

Dear Cyril,

John and I would like to extend our deepest gratitude for the outstanding job that you did in helping us to design our dream home. We never imagined that the process would run so smoothly, which we attribute to your expertise and professionalism.

Throughout the endless changes and variations that we imposed upon our plans, you were able to capture the true essence of our dream home and make it a reality. All the while, remaining sensitive to timelines and budget constraints.

We’ve heard many stories about the nightmares of designing and building your own home, however, our experience through the design phase has been nothing but pleasant. We cannot recall one negative experience thus far! We are encouraged that our process will continue in this manner.

We would be delighted to act as a reference on your behalf in the future. As a matter of fact, when we hear of others interested in designing a log home, John and I enthusiastically speak the praises of RCM Cad Design and Drafting Ltd.

If we had to start the whole process over, we wouldn’t change one thing!

Thanks again for everything! We’ve really enjoyed working with you! We hope that you will be able to make a visit to our home when it is completed.


John and Kryss – WA.

Cyril, Thank you so much for the great log home you designed for us. In  there are many beautiful log homes, but the 10,000 s.f. log home you designed for us is more beautiful than any of over 100 log homes that we have looked at.

You and your staff were very timely, and the pleasure to work with. It is evident that you and your staff love what you do and that making a client satisfied is a high priority. Being that I am an engineer I am somewhat of a perfectionist and hard to please, but your designs, drawings, and 3-D solid modeling, isometric view of the log system, and computer renderings exceeded my expectations. I would be happy to be a reference for your architectural design company. Your clients should feel fee to call me.

Thanks again
