Harrison Mills Custom Hybrid Timber Frame Project

Tamlin has just started a brand new custom hybrid timber frame project in Harrison Mills. A hybrid timber frame is an excellent option for our clients that want ‘some’ timber frame, but also want the design flexibility of a traditionally framed home. This home was designed to showcase the exposed douglas fir timbers where it counts. The renderings of this home show the timber frame structure and the placement of the timbers in the main living areas. The home is being built alongside several barns, storage sheds, and out buildings and will be a working farm when completed. Step one is getting the house built!

If you are thinking about building, give us a call to set up a consultation and start planning!

Thetis Island Renovation / Redesign Update

This is a full renovation that is underway on Thetis Island now. Tamlin has built on Thetis before and is very familiar with remote island access and the logistics of such builds. We also have an amazing transportation company that we use for all of our remote builds. He has a truck that fits onto most of the ferries and their height and length restrictions. The homeowners wanted to maintain the waterfront look of this unique cabin and incorporate the original front framed portion to fit into the redesign. The homeowners had outgrown the quaint cabin and wanted a new and larger living space. This new layout has timber frame components and is much larger and open that is was before. The renovation is going smoothly and on time and on budget. Stay tuned for more updates soon

Tamlin Project Updates

Cortes Guest Cabin June 30 2013 013_edited-1

It’s been a steady spring here at Tamlin. A few of the recent projects that have started in the last couple of months begins with a log cabin on Cortes Island. This Cabin is constructed out of reclaimed square profile douglas fir. It is a sturdy 1000 sq ft open concept plan that was customized to make it in to three bedrooms. Two rooms in the loft and the master on the main. It has a large deck with two sliding doors leading out onto the front facing deck. Reclaimed timber is hard to come by, and it is an excellent product as it has a very low moisture content and will shrink very little.

The second project is on Thetis Island. It is a major renovation of an existing cabin that was almost completely torn down. The only parts that were left are the unique water front view side and the foundation. The owners wanted to maintain the unique character of the cabin from the water, but they needed more room, and loved the idea of a timber frame structure. This is a very exciting project for us and the homeowners because of the original character combined with new the timber frame structure.

The third project is a large log home in Cold Lake Alberta. This building has been constructed in record time. The log walls and framing have gone together with ease, due to the experienced construction crew Tamlin employs. The logs are all western red cedar, and the owners report that the distinct cedar aroma fills the air around this stunning home.
