Here at Town and Country Cedar Homes we admire a quality, wood-built property like an art dealer would admire an original painting. We seek inspiration from the past and present and follow the work of our fellow crafters throughout the world. Often when we think of log-built properties, our minds conjure up images of rosy-cheeked skiers warming their limbs in front of a wood-burning fireplace and sipping on drinks at the end of a satisfying day on the slopes. While our expertise is in crafting custom residential homes, we love a ski lodge, especially if it’s timber-built. Below is a compilation of just some of our favorite ski lodges throughout North America.
