North Arrow Log Homes was originally started on Drummond Island in 1989 by Lyle C. Kelley. In 2011, Lyle sold his beloved business to longtime employee Alex Rivers. Since then, Alex has been committed to maintaining the same traditions of Scandinavian logsmiths and the North Arrow name. Lyle will continue to work with Alex until 2013, but will always offer insight for decades to come.

We are a log-home company that is interested in two things — quality construction and our clients’ satisfaction. Your handcrafted home will be constructed using the traditions and techniques of the Scandinavian logsmiths to achieve the fine craftsmanship that a log building deserves.
