This Vancouver Island company makes building easy, from your next storage shed to a lakeside cabin

When you’re getting ready to build there’s a lot to think about —preparing the site, acquiring permits, finding materials, and darting back to the store because you forgot door hinges. You may not even know what’s possible, which makes your dream backyard harder to picture.

A shed for your garden tools? A backyard office to make work-from-home more manageable? A yoga space that doubles as guest accommodation, or a hunting cabin for your vacation property? As the weather turns cooler it would be great to have a sauna or a roof over the hot tub.

What if it came in a kit, with quality wood and all the necessary hardware? What if there was a catalogue to inspire your next project?

PacRim Log Structures in Nanaimo offers high quality pre-fabricated log structure kits that suit versatile applications. With over 175 models ranging in size from sheds to four-bedroom homes, there’s a product to suit your needs.

A sturdy, chic Northern Spruce structure for every occasion

Explore the website or visit the display village in Nanaimo to see a range of models up close. Overwhelmed by choice? Check out these two popular units — neither requires building permits in most municipalities.

  • Wood Fired Hot Tub: Relax in style with a six-person wood fired hot tub. Comes fully assembled with a marine grade aluminium heater and a PE plastic liner — the perfect addition to your backyard or recreation property.
  • The Bunkie: Looking to build a guest space in the backyard, or a more comfortable cabin at your lakeside retreat? The 104 square foot Bunkie is elegant and roomy with a loft for extra living space.

Do-it-yourself or Do-it-for-me, easy building either way

  • DIY: Pick up your flat-packed order in Nanaimo with all the materials for your floor, walls, roof, windows and doors PLUS all the necessary hardware. PacRim will provide you with drawings and videos to help you build.

Have your order delivered anywhere on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands or shipped across Western Canada. Hire PacRim for assembly, and watch your sauna or studio rise up without lifting a finger.
  • Customizations and site prep: Upgrade your roof, floor boards or insulation, or talk to a sales representative about customizing a premium kit. PacRim is part of the EC Group, a team of builders who specialize in all facets of construction and home-building. If you need help preparing your building site or running utility lines, PacRim can help. They can even work with your local municipality and engineers to acquire building permits.
