Log Cabins Guaranteed To Make Your Friends Green With Envy

September, 2008

With a greater emphasis than ever being placed on doing your bit for the environment, it's not surprising many people are considering how eco friendly they are and what they can do to make improvements.

Choosing not to recycle or buying anything other than Fairtrade products can be considered by some as a social taboo, so how do you make the right choice when it comes to the big decisions, like buying a second home overseas?

Make your purchase eco friendly by choosing a development that places the environment at the forefront of what they do, such as 46o North - a collection of luxury log cabins in Mont Tremblant, Quebec.

Each individually crafted cabin, set in one to five acres of land, has been designed to offer all of the creature comforts and high specifications you'd want from a second home but anyone buying a property here can do so with a clear conscience.

Lang Walker, Executive Chairman of Walker Corporation which is building 46o North said: "Our log homes fit the move towards greater environmental awareness. Each home is built from sustainable materials, using fire-killed wood, and their insulation makes them very energy efficient. We took great care with the build program, designing it to cause minimum disruption to the existing environment and carefully positioning homes, along with roads and walkways, to ensure they sit sympathetically alongside the Canadian countryside."

The development, set on the edge of Lake Mitchell in 500 acres of wilderness, is designed to offer the perfect year round retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and a true taste of Quebec's nature wilderness.

All homes will benefit from spacious living accommodation, double height windows offering views of lake, forest or brooks, a mezzanine floor offering fantastic views of the landscape, a modern fully fitted kitchen, en suite bathrooms, real stone fireplace designed to be the heart of the home, and French doors to a spacious sundeck with terrace for BBQ. Some homes also have garages.

Residents at 46o North will be able to enhance their green credentials even further by choosing to buy and use environmentally friendly tissue paper products during their stay. The house builders have chosen to stock the North River line of products, created by Cascades Tissue Group, in all of their communal facilities as well as the Clubhouse shop. This means residents will be able to buy top quality tissue products that are ecologically sound, and the range includes recycled bathroom and facial tissues, paper towels and napkins.

Lang adds: "When it comes to sustainable developments 46o North fits the bill. Not only have we taken great measures to ensure an eco friendly approach to the development, we're also keen to encourage our customers to make 'green' choices wherever possible. Stocking the North River line of environmentally friendly tissue products give them the option of purchasing everyday essentials whilst also doing their bit for the environment."

As well as tissue products, eco friendly cleaning products, bin bags and soaps are also being used at the development.

Prices currently start from £251,000 and homes range in size from 2818 sq ft to 4348 sq ft.
