Bill Finley and Dave Cochell have been in the log restoration/construction business with 51 years of combined experience and have exceeded 52,000 linear feet of replacement on log homes of various ages and historical applications. Starting out as a small business, we have grown to be experts in the field of restoration, remodels, and new construction. Through the years, we have continued to further educate ourselves and have aligned ourselves with a team of experts in not only finish restoration, but also structural log replacement, new construction, re-models, interior-exterior railing systems, interior design, deck construction, spray foam insulation, insurance litigation support, and real estate evaluations. All of our log home construction and restoration work is done with a passion, and we are very proud of our end result. As we move into the future, we will always continue to look for the latest methods along with creating our own ways of very unique and one-of-a-kind construction.

West Coast Restoration specializes in structural log as well as post and beam restoration. We can remove rotted logs, whether it’s a full replacement, or half log, anywhere on the structure and on any type of log or post and beam construction. We start with raw material specific to the log/beam species on the home and cut, fit, scribe, and replace the rotted logs.

Our team of experts articulates the specific replacement applications and, once done, it will look like new. As West Coast Restoration continues to grow, we are always looking for skilled log professionals that would like to be part of our team.

Qualifications are that one must have a minimum of 10 years experience working in the log building industry with at least 3 of those years as a supervisor in full-scribe log construction and possess a good understanding of finish restoration.

“Bill delivers! He’s an informed, organized, and straight forward craftsman. Bill traveled from Washington to our Arizona home to restore and repair our log home. He worked relentlessly, did a splendid job that made our house look great, and left the site clean..”-Jim & Kim

“Bill Finley of West Coast Restoration performed restoration work at my residence in July 2006 Bill’s performance at my residence was nothing less than stellar. The professionalism and craftsmanship that he exhibited went beyond my expectations.”- Greg Gudbranson

“From our first contact, you were professional and obviously knowledgeable of your craft. We did extensive research before deciding on who would restore our “dream home” and hands down you were the man for the job. When our home required twice as much stain as expected, you never attempted to pass on the additional cost. This coupled with your continual contact with us throughout the process attests to your integrity and professionalism. You were the right choice!”- Frank and Leslie Plonkey

“We purchased a 20-year old log home whose logs had weathered differently to the point that they ranged from dirty brown to dried-out grayish-white. West Coast Restoration did a superb job of restoring them to a healthy condition and consistent color, while maintaining the beautiful character and variations in the rough-hewn wood. Bill is one of the best contractors we have ever worked with, from the first visit to the last.”- Cameron Teller and Pete Atha
