Pan-Abode - The Original

Whether you choose to build in the forest, in the country, by the lake, overlooking the ocean, or near the city, no other home brings you closer to the heart of nature.

Pan-Abode International is Canadian-owned and proudly upholds the original vision of our founding partners to provide every family with enduring memories of their “cabin in the woods” experience.

Our production facility features computerized milling equipment, custom engineered notching machinery, and specialized finishing technology. In our design and engineering offices, we use computerized drafting and log coding software to provide accurate, detailed drawings and superb building documentation for ease of assembly.

Commercial Projects

Pan-Abodes are used for a wide range of commercial projects – especially those looking for a unique natural material with aromatic appeal and a package that is suited for remote builds and ease of maintenance. Your clients will love the eco-friendly made-in-Canada benefits too. Pan-Abode’s 4×6 western red cedar interlocking machine milled log building system works well for resorts, lodges, rental accommodations, visitor centres, club houses, cafes, restaurants, and as part of planned communities.

Like all Pan-Abodes, they can be custom designed to your unique client’s needs and style.

What others are saying

“(The family) is so attached to our Pan-Abode that we are formulating a plan whereby it will remain in our family after my wife and I can no longer be there. In fact, this Pan-Abode is a significant part of the ‘Coates’ family life.”
