The Cascadian School of Log Building & Design teaches students how to build and maintain log structures that will last for generations to come.
Taking place on the southern flank of Mt. Hood, at the home of the historic Summit Ranger Station, Cascadian’s courses offer students the opportunity to learn about the skills and tools needed for new log structure construction, as well as developing an appreciation for “old” log buildings.
There are also Field School Sessions that take place from time to time at various historic log cabin properties across the Pacific Northwest. With an emphasis on preservation exercises, including an introduction to the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards and Guidelines for the Treatment of Historic Properties, these Field School Sessions teach participants how to properly approach the planning and work involved with a historic preservation project.
