About Garth Farquhar
” I graduated in 1977, from the University of New Brunswick with a Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering.
After working at the New Brunswick Electrical Power Commission and Calgary Power, I left the profession in 1981 to start a career in log building. Forty years later, I have built log homes all over Atlantic Canada, in Germany, Japan and all across the United States from Texas to Maine.
At this point in my career, I would like to pass on my accumulated knowledge and experience to the next generation.
I started my first log house with a B. Allan Mackie book and lots of enthusiasm. In hindsight I would have benefited greatly from a hands on log building course.
Building a log cabin or log home is major undertaking of time and effort, not to mention the associated costs of a foundation, roof, doors, windows, plumbing, electrical etc., all of the components that make a building liveable.
If the log walls are drafty, and destined to rot in a few short years, all of the effort and money that has gone into the building, will have been wasted.
It is with this in mind, that I would like to offer a practical education in log building construction. I have trained dozens of professional log builders over my career and it is very satisfying to see the high quality work that they produce.
It is my goal to teach many more. “
