Guest Lodges

Western Red Cedar Lodge

Since 2017 NLH has been the exclusive sales agent for Pioneer Log Homes of BC. The main reason for this advancement in business relationships is the fantastic and beautiful Western Red Cedar logs that they have available.

NLH saw the opportunity at this time, to offer our customers not only the best Douglas Fir logs in the Southern Hemisphere, as we have done for 30 years, but now also massive 200 year old Western Red Cedar logs and homes.
Pictures above are of first Western Red Cedar Log home imported into NZ in 2017 to my customers Jason and Heather. They really wanted the massive western red cedar logs that we cannot get here in NZ.
