In 1997 RippleCraft was honored to be selected as one of only four North American log home manufacturers to take part in the beautiful Woodlands Development of Belle Corporation in Tagaytay, Philippines. Belle Corporation, a developer of exclusive residential and resort properties, included 26 homes from RippleCraft in the Woodlands development as well as materials for their Spa and Lodge added later in 2000. RippleCraft continues to send individual units to Belle with the most recent nearing completion in September 2006.
Two new home models were developed for Belle that not only provided owners a beautiful viewpoint of the surrounding mountainous landscapes, but also to look at home on the rugged vistas themselves. These homes, built with western red cedar logs, provide good examples of how RippleCraft Log Homes can not only please the individual log home buyer, but can also satisfy the needs of multi-unit purchasers.
RippleCraft shipped its first log home to Japan in 1991. Since that time other customers have come to realize the ease with which they can obtain and construct a RippleCraft Log Home–even internationally.
International customers use the same design process as those who live in the United States. Our designer takes the ideas of the customer and then adapts them to our technology.
However, it does a customer very little good to go through the trouble of finding a log home company, designing the perfect plan, and then preparing the site for construction if there is not sufficient product support provided to the buyer to make certain that the project is completed properly. We believe our obligation to the customer does not end when the logs are loaded into a container. In fact, our obligation is just beginning. We want the log home you buy to exceed your expectations in its ease of construction, quality of materials and final beauty.
I moved from Tokyo to the far north of Japan to Hokkaido about four years ago. Because I thought a log home would fit perfectly into the natural surroundings of the area, I purchased a RippleCraft Log Home. I clearly remember the day of joy when my log kit arrived here after its long journey from Michigan. After its completion I was very satisfied with its grand appearance and its serenity.
