Ecolog Cottage Cowichan Valley
Egbert lives in Germany and dreamed of building a vacation home for several years. He first saw our Ecolog home in Central Saanich during a Canada trip in 2012. It must have been “love at first sight” for both Canada (or more specific Vancouver Island) and for Ecolog homes.
In 2014 he found a building lot in the Cowichan Valley and started developing the lot by building a septic system and getting hydro and water hooked up to an RV. Now he had his own place to stay when visiting the country, and started a more detailed planning process to build his own Ecolog home.
He got in touch with Randy Churchill, the same timberframe builder who built the barn style Ecolog home in Courtenay a year earlier.
Egbert liked the look-and-feel of Ecolog homes and that they are primarily made of wood – grown right in the Cowichan Valley where he planned to build.
After doing a lot of research and looking at several Ecolog homes from previous customers Egbert decided on a floor plan for his upcoming Ecolog home. Detailed planning together with Egbert and Randy started end of 2015, and the building process started beginning of 2016.
In September 2016 the home was ready for Egbert to move in. He is excited to spend lots of holidays with his family in “the valley”. Despite being his “family cottage” he is also planning to rent out the Ecolog home when he is back in Germany.
