Custom Steel components sets this Chalet design apart

Klaus, Senior Designer/Timber frame Technician is looking over the custom steel order before delivery to the construction site for our Kicking Horse Chalet project

The methods of fastening the frame members can differ in custom timber frame homes usually design dictating method, where structural engineering does not play a factor. In traditional timber framing, mortice and tenon or more complex joints are usually fastened using only wooden pegs. But, the timber trusses designed for this chalet will incorporate steel joinery as seen in the picture for both structural and architectural purposes. It is amazing when braces are added to a simple post it can really dress up the whole area. Timberframe design is very flexible; depending on one’s taste or environment - there truly is a design for everyone. 

Stay tuned and follow the project; as we move through the construction phase.
