Why Riverbend?


Riverbend Log Homes have been manufactured in Nackawic, New Brunswick, Canada since 1986.

Our Eastern Canadian location ensures a long term supply of quality white cedar and efficient shipping to both Canada and internationally. White Cedar contains natural oils which protect against mould, temperature variations, moisture and insects. Its name “arborvitae” means “tree of life”- appropriate since its flattened leaves are eaten in the winter by wildlife such as deer, and its protective oils have made it useful for centuries in the production of items which must resist decay even when in contact with moisture, and outdoors in extreme temperatures – items such as logs for cabins, poles, posts, rails for fences, shingles for roofs, saunas, decks, docks, etc. It is no accident that many barns and cabins were made from cedar, and are still standing many decades later.

Riverbend cottages, homes and commercial projects can be found throughout North America, and several European countries.

Experienced design and production professionals ensure that a quality product is delivered on schedule to your site.
