Client Testimonial: Terry and Brenda Burns

There may not be as much home to decorate at the Burns place this year, but Brenda Burns and her husband Terry made sure that there’d be enough windows and outlets to display their Christmas candle lights. The Burns family grew up as families do. Their kids became adults and moved into places of their own leaving Terry and Brenda with a lot of empty space to maintain and heat in the winter. With their retirement approaching, they began talking about cabins. “What made us choose Leland’s was because we met Carol. Everything we asked for, Carol said ‘Yes, [...]

Client Testimonial: Richard and Marsha Oliver

Inviting someone into your home is an intimate gesture that happens a lot less these days with everyone’s busy schedules. Guests get to see how you live, what you like, and maybe even get a little glimpse of the mess you keep meaning to clean. Our home says a lot about who we are and what we value from the pictures on the walls to the furniture we use. It’s an honor to be trusted enough to be welcomed into someone’s home but to be asked to build someone’s home is an even greater honor. Richard and Marsha Oliver were met [...]

Setting the Scene for Your Custom Cabin

We’ve all heard the mantra about buying a home: location, location, location. And while it’s easy to imagine the role location plays when considering homes in a city landscape, there are a lot of new and important concerns to keep in mind when choosing the right place for your Leland’s cabin home.

They valued this wood so much that they used it to make their canoe ribs and slats. They even used the oils extracted from the twigs to make chest decongestants. When timbermen arrived in the region in the late 1800’s, [...]
