"The team at Elk River Mountain Homes completed our home ahead of schedule and with great attention to detail.

"When we decided to build our log home in Fernie, we interviewed several local builders. We chose Dave Hozjan from Elk River Mountain Homes not only because of his experience with logs but also because of his infectious enthusiasm and energy.
