All-Season Vacation Cabin

These homeowners are building a 1,405 sf Cutter near the Wenatchee River – outside of Leavenworth. Leavenworth, WA is a popular location to enjoy year-round activities. The post & beam cabin includes two bedrooms and a storage/sleeping loft, open kitchen with island / dining / great room, two baths, laundry room and a two-car garage with in-floor radiant heat. In addition to the wall of windows at the prow, the great room also includes a glue-lam, open riser stair system to the second level. A large 580 sf deck off the great room offers territorial views to watch the rafters up and down the river.

The homeowners modified our Cutter 1280 design.

Creekside Retirement Home

View property overlooking a rambling creek is the perfect setting to enjoy the retirement lifestyle. The homeowners meticulously planned and project managed a 696 sf Horizon View in eastern Washington. This home is built with our post & beam (stud framed) wall system. When completed, it will be sheathed with 1 x 8 cedar siding. 9’ triple store doors with triple picture windows over the top bring an abundance of natural light into the home and focus attention outside. This one-bedroom floor plan includes a walk-in closet, full-size kitchen, great room and laundry room. The 216 sf deck offers an overlook of the entire property.

The homeowners started with our Horizon View 600 design and enlarged it to fit their needs.

Country Setting Near Mt. Rainier

Construction is well underway for this Post and Beam 2,079 sf custom Citylights home. The floor-to-ceiling windows in the great room face a pastoral setting and mountain views. The 1,608 sf main level includes a master bedroom wing with walk-in-closet, open kitchen / dining / great room, extra large pantry and a laundry room with a dog wash area.

The second level (which overlooks the great room) includes a second bath and bedroom and a study. This homeowner built a large garage / shop prior to starting construction of the home. That structure makes a great storage area for windows, doors and miscellaneous hardware – while the home is being built. The homeowners will be using the shop to stain their 1 x 8 cedar siding boards.

What Our Clients Are Saying...

"The Best Place Possible"

It is our hope that this letter will ease your mind that you have found the best place possible to start the exciting journey of building your cedar home.

While driving in North Bend, WA in the summer of 2004, we passed a charming small log home. The owner of this home noticed our interest and invited us to see her home. She was quite proud of it and was used to the attention it received from passersby. She gave us the name and number for Mike and Judy Flanagan (Cedar Homes of Washington).

After meeting with Mike and Judy at their beautiful home, our expectations that they were indeed honest, decent people to work with- were met. We are now nearing completion of our home, and in reality, Mike and Judy's job with us is done. They could move on with other projects. Yet, they still check in with us and will continue to do so until we are complete.

In the course of building our home, we found two big advantages in choosing Cedar Homes of Washington. First, when filing the permit, Mike was there. Mike stayed with us the whole day, answering questions from the building department, enabling us to get our plans submitted in one day. The process would've taken days (and many trips) to and from to finalize this step of the process (if we did this one our own). The second advantage was, if you were to buy a package directly from Pan Abode, or perhaps another dealer, your home package would be literally dropped at your site for you to handle. Mike and Judy were right there at the drop-off, overseeing the placement of all materials, taking inventory of all materials and making sure any discrepancies were rectified.
