Mossy Ridge Logworks was awesome to deal with. They built a great quality log home for us. Travis always had time to answer any of our numerous questions. They are true artists, love what they do and it shows in their product. We would highly recommend them if you are thinking about building a log home.

When I was enlisted to project manage a hybrid log home for a client of mine, I was apprehensive to say the least, not having experience with the unique aspects of this type of structure. After meeting with Travis and going back to him numerous times both previous to and during the build, I realized that he had a deep wealth of knowledge about log builds, he was always approachable and most helpful with all the details I needed to know. It felt like a team effort. Personally, as a general contractor with many years experience, I would highly recommend Mossy ridge. Travis delivered the log structure, assembled it, and paid attention to all the details, informing us as he constructed. He continues to be an approachable resource long after he has left the site. An all-around pleasant and rewarding experience for me and the homeowner.

what we do


Mossy Ridge Logworks offers a wide variety of products and services.  We offer custom built, hand crafted log homes – from full scribe flared cedar to a more modern post and beam.  If squared timber is more your style, we build a wide range of timber frame styles – and of course we can build a more traditional style home using dovetail corners. 

We also provide restoration services.  If you have an existing log building that needs work we would love to come and have a look at it.  Please check out the short video of the old dovetail building that we restored and is now our office!


You have been dreaming about your Log Home for a long time.

Our reputation as an established quality log home builder is growing every day.  We are located just north of Manning, in Alberta’s Peace Region.


Building to the highest standards and producing the highest quality product available is our goal.  In order to build the best product, we need to build with the best material.  We import logs from the interior and the coast of British Columbia, buying the finest Western Red Cedar and Douglas Fir possible. 



President, manager and logbuilder



For as long as I can remember I wanted to have my very own log cabin....In 2008 I read a few log building books and took out a permit to harvest logs.  With the help of a friend, we fell the logs – That is where the real work began!  Lucky enough to get a few pointers from some people who had worked with logs before, I started my journey.  At the End of the Summer, I ended up with much more than a cabin I was proud to call my own.  I knew what I wanted to do for a living.  I wanted to build log homes.

With a desire to learn more about the craft of log building I took a one month log building course.  And that sealed the deal for me.  When I returned home from the course that winter I fell more logs and started building for other people.  I firmly believe we never stop learning and we need to surround ourselves with like-minded people.  I am proud to sit on the International Log builders Association board, and I am currently the Vice President for the Association.


Our small little company has come a long way in the past few years.  We have a new shop that we build in 12 months of the year, new equipment and more talented staff members. We recently won the Business of the Year award for the County of Northern Lights.  Cassie and I are very proud of the work we do and the homes we build for our customers. 

whether it is a 3,000sq.ft. dream home or a cabin getaway, we look forward to working with you.
