Dedicated to teaching all who would like to learn


Cascadian School of Log Building & Design

NOTE:     Founded in Dubois, Wyoming as the Rogers School of Log Building and Design, we have relocated our headquarters to the slopes of Mt. Hood in Oregon and altered our name to reflect our surroundings. This relocation of the headquarters does not change the outreach and workshop programs begun in Dubois. The Rogers brothers remain committed to teaching all who would like to learn.

Building with Logs is hard work, but it is healthy, honest work. It is not beyond the strength of most people as long as it is at a comfortable pace which allows you, the builder, to appreciate the process.

Our courses are designed to provide you with a working knowledge of the basic skills related to building with logs. These include: Forestry principles, Design considerations, Tool use, Layout procedures, Notching, Various forms of Joinery, Floor & Foundation styles, Wall & Roof assembly.

Classes are held to a size which allows the instructors to give individuals the attention needed to learn these procedures.

Come and Join us for a week or two and expect to have fun learning a new skill.
