From Builder to Visionary

Murray Arnott's commitment to the highest standards of quality and service began over twenty-five years ago when he was a carpenter and builder in British Columbia.  After studying architecture at McGill University, he moved to the world's premier winter resort, Whistler, BC, where he designed numerous wonderful log homes throughout the eighties and nineties, including homes in other regions of Canada and the United States.

In 1998, Murray was awarded Best Home in British Columbia for a home in its size category. The article Into the Unknown: The Voyage of Creative Risk, gives some insight into Murray's philosophy behind the design of this home and the creative process. The recognition he received from this home led Murray to offer his services throughout North America and around the world. He relocated to Eastern Canada and diversified his practice to include timber frame and sustainable design.

His leadership and association with the International Log Builders' Association, where he served as Vice-President, has kept him at the forefront of log building technology.  He has developed close relationships with many of the finest log builders in the world.  In addition, Murray strives to be in touch with the interests and desires of would-be log home owners.  He has been a consultant to numerous log industry publications and, for several years, wrote the Design Column for Log Home Living Magazine.  His book, ON DESIGN: Designing a Better Log Home, has received glowing reviews.
