Ric Dürfeld, owner of Dürfeld Log & Timber in British Columbia, Canada, isn’t just a log home craftsman, he’s an artist in wood. So when a prominent Colorado client approached him about building a vacation retreat for his family, he knew he was in for a very special, highly customized project, and he was up for the exciting challenge.
To comprise the log shell, the clients made several trips to the company’s assembly plant, hand-selecting each of the 24- to 48-inch-diameter, 300-year-old western red cedar logs from a special collection Ric refers to as “God’s pile.”
“Some of the logs revealed over 500 growth rings. There’s about 25,000 years’ worth of British Columbia forest growth displayed in that house,” he estimates.
