San Juan Island Retreat

The framing crew has arrived and construction has begun. This 680 sf craftsman-style cabin is a hybrid mix of our laminated timbers and stud wall construction. The design includes two bedrooms, open living / kitchen / dining, 1 full bath, a half bath and an enclosed sun porch.

It took about 3 weeks to complete the shell for this home.

Cedar Home in Nagano, Japan

A custom 1,364 sf chalet is under construction in Nagano, Japan.  The homeowner is project managing with help (as needed) from a local contractor.

This 3-bedroom, 1 bath home shipped shortly after the devastating March, 2011 earthquake.  The homeowner also battled multiple typhoons during construction and heavy snowfall.

What a relief to have the roof on and begin interior finish work!

Custom Garage with Apartment

The building crew is making good progress on this post and beam custom garage.  The unheated garage area is 37' x 28'.  Plenty of room for 3 cars -- or in this case, two cars and a boat.

The overhead bonus room is 1,049 sf. It includes an open kitchen, dining living area - all with access to the deck (and a fabulous view!). A bedroom, full bath and closet complete the upper level.

What Our Clients Are Saying...

"An Extremely Positive Experience"

We have had the pleasure of knowing Mike and Judy Flanagan since 2001. We met at an Open House for their business, Cedar Homes of Washington. We were looking at cabin packages to build a retreat in the mountains for our family. Their openness, friendliness and willingness to help is genuine. We never felt any pressure to give a commitment. The fact that the home they live in is a product they built themselves from a kit is a positive statement that they know the design and build process - have been through it - and know first hand about long term maintenance, etc. for these type of structures.

The summer of 2004, we had a contractor build the shell of our cabin and it was an extremely positive experience. There have been minor issues that have come up during the building process, such as shortages for hardware. Mike and Judy have always promptly returned phone calls and remedied the situation in short order. We cannot think of a way that they could improve the way they conduct their business or improve their customer service.
