Looking to incorporate Timber Framing into your residential / commercial projects?  We’re here to help.

Clients are invariably impressed with the inclusion of traditionally joined, full dimension timber frame elements in their homes and businesses. The visual impact and the added value traditional timber framing gives to the project, is truly impressive.

The process of incorporating timber frame elements into your conventional construction does not have to be difficult, time consuming, or expensive!  We are able to implement a variety of timber frame systems into your desired budget.

We will deliver what you are looking for.  Impressive, full sized and traditionally joined timber accents, structural timber frame great rooms incorporated into a conventionally framed residence (Hybrid Timber Frames), exterior living spaces and garden structures, full timber frames…. With short lead times and direct, personal service we will deliver what you are looking for.

Our services to you are entirely flexible.  We can provide full design, engineering, manufacturing and installation services, or simply manufacture the timber frame for you. We can provide the full architectural and structural design, including the engineering for the whole project, or work from your designs. You decide how you would like to take advantage of our expertise.

We have significant experience in conventional construction, not only timber framing, and as such we can make the process of integrating timber frame elements as seamless and as fast as possible.  We can coordinate the interface between conventional construction and the timber frame, as well as between engineered truss systems and the timber frame without difficulty.

Naturally, the earlier we are involved in the project the easier it is for everyone.  By contacting us early on, we can help to ensure that services and or structural details are not duplicated and the heavy timber integration goes smoothly.

Wherever you are in the world, we can take care of the details.

Drop by for a coffee. Come for tour. Make the call. Set up a tail gate meeting.

Kiln Drying | Okanagan Timber Frame

Because the entire frame is brought to a similar moisture content levels, and essentially pre-shrunk before the final planing and before any joinery is cut, we see less joint separation over the life of the frame. If the wood placed in the frame is of different moisture content, as the wetter wood shrinks through the natural drying process that takes place in your completed frame, spaces will appear in your joinery.
