Lynda Brower Schneider
President & Owner
I appreciate your interest in Cedar Direct Log Homes. You have arrived at our new website, “WELCOME HOME 2023”, and we hope this is your most enjoyable experience.
My family and I have lived in a Northern White Cedar log home for over three decades. Their stunning aesthetics make the perfect backdrop for all your activities.
From sipping wine by the roaring fire while the snow falls to enjoying a fabulous dinner on your back deck on a warm summer evening, there is nothing like what atmosphere a log home brings to your safe haven. Log home living is truly a lifestyle that symbolizes getting back to nature with a Zen place to relax and therefore renew yourself.
Log homes come in all shapes and sizes and feature amenities like stone fireplaces, walls of expansive glass, and soaring cathedral ceilings. Our custom homes can also feature steam showers, infrared saunas, and outdoor kitchens that make you realize…this is not Abe Lincoln’s cabin anymore.
So come inside and explore. Please do not hesitate to ask us any questions; we are here to help. When you are ready, call us to set up your private appointment to get started on your dream log home. We welcome you.
Our Vice President of Marketing For Cedar Direct Log Homes
VP of Marketing
Nora has over 35 years of experience in the log home industry. She not only grew up in a cedar log home, but she also grew up in the log home business. Yes, Nora is Lynda’s daughter, which makes this a family affair.
Nora received her Bachelor of Science degree in Finance from Slippery Rock University. Her love for education didn’t stop there. She holds an MBA with a concentration in Finance and another Master’s degree in Space Studies. She completed her Ph.D. merely for her love of education and everything space…that is, outer space.
When not working, Nora enjoys spending time with her son, Mason, 19, and playing video games. Nora played wheelchair basketball for almost 20 years for the Pittsburgh Steelwheelers. She helped to co-found the only all-female wheelchair basketball team in Western PA called the Steel City Starz.
Nora and Lynda both have dedicated many hours of their time to spinal cord injury research and awareness. From the Pittsburgh Steelwheelers to the Buoniconti Fund to Cure Paralysis, they have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for many charitable organizations.
Don’t hesitate to ask Nora for help designing an ADA/wheelchair-accessible home. She has built her own and has plenty of real-world experience navigating a log home in a wheelchair.
