Tell us about yourself:
I am a builder in California, specializing in custom homes and log structures for the past 25 years. In my early childhood i lived in our family's homestead log home on a ranch in Montana. I love to hunt, fly fish, cook and am an avid photographer. My wife and I will move back to Montana in the next few years. We are in the process of building our new home on our land west of Kalispell, Montana. I am a partner in E. Roane Construction Management and Lang Creek Log Homes www.langcreekloghomes.comwww.eroane.com
Are you lucky enough to be living in a log home?

Thanks for the welcome, Ed! I wish you luck on that move to the Big Sky country! I took a job for a short while in Kalispell, so i know the area a little bit. I used to live just to the Idaho side of the border on Hwy 2. (Now we are on the north side of Bonners Ferry, just at the junction of 95 and 2.) Glad to hear you are safe from the fires! I didn't notice from the pictures... Is Lang Creek a handcrafter or a milled log company?
Thanks for the welcome Ed.
Kalispell is great but there are no construction jobs and that is why I am considering the job of refinishing log homes, as that is something I believe people will need to have done as compared to new construction which is more or less optional. The learning curve of this trade can be overcome by anyone with the will to do it. I have a good eye for quality and proud of it.
I have had no major callbacks in the past as I mostly do all my own work. Now I have to study up on log refinishing- read a lot. Harder will be to get hands on experience. I could use a mentor. Getting ones feet wet is the best way to learn anything as you know. Regards otto
We have the ash and the heavy smoke from the Sylmar fire. We are all lucky. Thanks for the note.
We will be at the show and sharing a booth with an associate. I look forward to meeting you. If you find your self with an extra moment check out our web site at www.langcreekloghomes.com.
Thanks Ed - I actually live in Torrance and we got ash from the OC fires. And thankfully we were not in harm's way. Yes we are neighbors. There is a show in Feb in Sacramento - we are planning to attend - hopefully we'll see your there. Dee
Hey Ed, it snowed for a couple of hours, but nothing stuck... was too warm - about 40ish. The Swan mountains have some snow and Glacier is wearing a white crown, but winter hasn't really begun here in the valley. We'd better get some action soon or Big Mountain ski resort won't be opening on Thanksgiving. However, I don't know what its like on the other side of the mountain... sometimes they open the back side first.
I know that area well, we're off Farm to Market Rd. on Rhodes Draw (out in the boonies). With your land prepped, I guess you'll start the house next spring? Keep in touch, next trip to God's Country... give me a shout and I'll take you up on that cup of coffee.
