This structure is being sent to the Edmonton Log & Cottage show in April, 2011.  Come visit us to have a tour! Following the show, we will ship this Log Post and Beam home to Nordegg, AB, where we will install the pre-fabricated wall panels. Built with Western Red Cedar logs, this home features 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. The front elevation of home is stunning, with a mix of only windows and log beams.

This project is scheduled for construction for the spring of 2011.  Tyee Log and Timber will create complete architectural and Timber Frame shop drawings for this project.  Our handcrafted Douglas Fir timber frame will be enclosed with Structurally Insulated Panels (SIPs).  This home will feature a timber roof system and vaulted ceilings.

Handcrafted Log Cabins - Whitehorse, YK


Handcrafted Log Home - Seba Beach, AB

We completed the delivery and setup of the full scribe log home in August 2010.  This 2 storey walkout features large Cedar character logs with prominent flared ends.  The main entry features paired curved log tie beams, and the interior has many carved accents.  Tyee was responsible for full design and fabrication on this project.


Handcrafted Log Home - Sundridge, ON

Through careful coordination with our client in Ontario, Tyee designed this 2 storey handcrafted scribe fit log home.  This home will come complete with a timber roof system of 4x8 timber rafters (at 3' on center).  Our log building crew set this home up in October 2010, and would like to thank our client for their hospitality!

Other products and services from Tyee Log Homes


Timber Frame Hybrid

We ensure that coordination is done so that the interface is clean and the timber or log looks like it "fits" in the structure, not that it is an after thought. Designs incorporate timber or log elements for great rooms, entryways, gable accents, balconies, stairs, railings and mantles. Careful coordination between the framing crews, pre-fabricated truss supplier and finishing crews needs to be done.


Commercial Log and Timber

Most of these structures have been highly complex hybrid structures, that combine conventional framing with log and timber building techniques. As part of these projects, we have built log and timber recreational structures, bridges and signs. We have provided log and heavy timber for residential subdivisions, hotels and condominiums. Many resort based commercial projects feature either log or heavy timber.


Handcrafted Log Homes

We incorporate the "overscribed" method of building in each of our homes, incorporate screw jacks to all vertical posts, slab flat any logs that tie into conventional framing and cut slots and keyways for interior walls and openings. Our handcrafted log homes feature large diameter logs where no two pieces are similar to create a square and true structure.


Post and Beam Homes

Between the log structure conventional framing panels are installed and finished with drywall on the interior and wood siding, hardi-board, stucco, brick or rock on the exterior. The logs are the structural "skeleton" of the home and unlike timber frame homes the structure is visible both inside and outside the home. Log Post and Beam Structures offer the look and feel of log homes, while enabling a wider range of design options.


Timber Frame Homes

After your frame is raised by our crews, structural insulated panels or pre-fabricated walls and conventional roof framing are installed around the frame. At Tyee Log & Timber, we construct a virtual model of the home, prior to fabrication so that the owner knows what the final structure will look like. Tyee Log & Timber specializes in providing shop drawings of the pre-fabricated wall panels & can provide SIP's upon request.


Log and Timber Accessories

For a small additions and renovations to your home, we can also supply entryways, gable-end brackets or trusses and accent post and beams. To compliment your log or timber home we can supply stairs, handrails and mantles. With your handcrafted home we can provide custom wood carvings.
