Summertime! 2016

Warm weather, swimming and vacations — such events often announce the arrival of summer. Following the tell tail signs of the days getting longer and the nights getting shorter and the kids getting out of school! The home is now a hustle & bustle of bodies; the energy increases and family plans and schedules are re-defined.

 

We all love the feeling of summer, the excitement of taking an extra-long weekend, planning that family vacation time; or just creating space & time to relax a little bit more - become happier, more balanced and hopefully recharging our batteries.

 

While others are hopefully slowing down a little bit, Canadian Timberframes continues to ramp up. Our mill works over time & our manufacturing facility is on full tilt, turning out all the plans that run through the floor creating and forming the structure to many dream homes. We have seen it all recently, from fresh white painted timbers, to raw timbers that will be white-washed in on location to rustic and the elegant; we manufacture it all. If you can dream it, we will produce it and are always up for solving a new challenge. We thrive on collaboration; complexity and serving our customers with extreme pride and professionalism.

 

So, if you are looking to build that glamourous getaway; a new cottage deck; timber addition; expansion to an existing building; or a complete new customized home for your family, we can assist you with your 2016 goals.

Beautifully Precise

It all starts with a tree. And not just any tree. The best trees for building a timberframe home are tall with a tight, dense grain and beautiful natural colour. The best of the best is the Douglas fir, but even within that species some are better than others depending on where it grows.

Golden BC where Canadian Timberframes has it’s manufacturing facility, is in the heart of the best stands of interior-grown Douglas fir in North America,” says Jeff Bowes, president and partner at Canadian Timberframes Limited. “Douglas fir grows well in Oregon and Washington State but the Columbia Valley in the B.C. interior is at a higher elevation which causes slower growth and results in a tighter grain.” A tighter grain means stronger and more stable timbers.

Bring the outdoors in with timber frame construction

Best recognized by their soaring great rooms and large walls of windows that allow the unobstructed views of cottage living; timber frame construction is becoming the choice of many cottage goers today.  The architectural style is so versatile; whither you love a contemporary or more traditional feel; rustic charm or a more polished finish - custom timber frame homes can meet the needs of even the most distinguished.

“The benefit of timber frame construction is its ability to integrate larger, more open spaces,” says Jeff Bowes, president and partner at Canadian Timberframes Limited. “Timber frames let you remove interior structural walls for better sightlines of Muskoka’s stunning vistas while being beautiful in their own right.”
