The company was started in 1973, by the founder Bryan Reid Senior. Pioneer Log Homes is located in Williams Lake, British Columbia. This proves to be a good location because of its proximity to an endless supply of quality Western Red Cedar, Douglas Fir, and Spruce. As this successful log home company grew, the family joined in the business. From Bryan's brother Andre Chevigny (who is a master craftsman), and his other brother David Chevigny. Bryan's son, Bryan Reid Junior, also became part of the growing family business. Bryan Reid Jr. trained underneath his uncle Andre and father to also become a master craftsman builder. This family log home company takes great pride in what they do, and their log home and log cabin portfolio and reputation shows that.

One style of log homes you will find on the Pioneer Log Home site is the log post and beam style of log homes. Post and beam log homes and log cabins offer flat walls over the typical rounded log home look, with the same look and feel as a standard log home has. Post and beam log homes can also be built by the team at Pioneer Log Homes by their qualified log builders, and will without a doubt stand the test of time, with their strength and durability. These log homes are the type of homes that you will enjoy with family and friends for years to come. Pioneer Log Homes can ship their log homes and log cabins all over the world.

Building green is also something that is important to people at Pioneer Log Homes. It starts with the design to the construction. Green building is the right thing to do, environmentally, socially, and economically. The use of wood and timber in a log home build helps to log home structures that are ecologically sound, energy efficient, architecturally beautiful and durable. Wood that comes from a well-managed forest is a good environmental choice. Log home manufacturers and home buyers from all over the world are realizing that a timber structure is a healthy, comfortable, and build that has lower energy consumption, and better overall performance. A log home build also reduces the impact that buildings have on human health and the environment in regards to site selection, construction, design, operation, maintenance, and demolition.

The use of more wood for log homes and construction is a natural and easy way to make a difference with regards to the environment. Wood and logs reduce the greenhouse gases and help to store carbons. A forest that is healthy and sustainable is a readily available solution that helps with climate change. On average, a healthy acre of growing tree can absorb almost three tons of carbon dioxide and release close to two tons of oxygen. As tree growth slows and the tree ages, there are less carbons that are absorbed.When it comes to planning, designing and building your log home, you will want to do your research and work with a log home builder that shares in your vision. One of the most important things you will need to do when planning a log home build is choosing the piece of property where your log home will be built.
