Family owned and operated Longhouse Specialty Forest Products began in 1985, based out of Parksville Qualicum. However, family ancestors have been milling wood in Qualicum as far back as the 1890s. With this much history, Longhouse possesses superior skills and experience that cannot be beat by competitors.
Involved in more than 14,000 projects around the world, our company works with some of the most accomplished professionals in the construction and design industries. All of our custom millwork is completed at our production facility. We sell directly thereby offering savings to contractors.
