Their first choice was 1867 Confederation Log Homes, a company owned by Rick Kinsman and Mike Murphy. “It was a no-brainer,” says Carolyn. Based in Bobcaygeon, Confederation has been in business for more than 30 years with a reputation for quality and service that has won customers across North America, Japan, Great Britain and Europe. The firm can supply a log home package, ready to be erected, or a fully finished, turn-key house. “It all depends on what service the customer requires,” says Kinsman. “Not only do we build traditional log homes, we can supply timber frame or stick frame, or combinations of all three.”
“Our job is to make it work,” says Kinsman.
Confederation’s three full-time designers work with clients on a wish list for each home. “We take that wish list, put it on paper and say this is what it looks like,” he says. At the company’s design centre, clients can “walk through” every room of their house and visualize where furniture and appliances will sit. “Our job is to make it work,” says Kinsman.
