Blaeberry Timber Frame Home
This project is only 10 minutes from Golden, British Columbia in the beautiful Blaeberry region. The design is 1800 sq. ft. on the main floor, a bungalow with a spectacular view of the Mountains of the Rocky Mountain Trench and Columbia Valley. The Master bedroom with full ensuite occupies one wing off the great room and the Kitchen dining and mud room occupy the other wing. There are 2 Bedrooms downstairs, Jack & Jill full bath, Office and Studio occupy the walkout level. The walkout level flows out to a large patio and Fire pit on the edge of the reflection lake in front of the home.
A first floor level deck is attached to the Eastern elevation of the house and will have the outdoor kitchen and patio area that is accessed from the dining room. It has a commanding view of Redburn Mountain with fantastic morning sunshine and shaded area for the afternoon.
Gord Barlow from Osprey Contracting is doing an awesome job on this build and Colin Stotts from Time Structures is the lead on the timber raising and SIP installation. The clients also used Timber Structures for the timber frame design.
Special thanks to the the clients for the awesome images and time lapse footage of the timber raising. Stay tuned for further updates.
"Robyn and I would like you all to know that the dream of our home design has become a reality for us. The intent of the design shines through against the mountain backdrop of the Columbia valley. I think it is rare to find a synergy between the designer and the timberframe team that come into the project cold and have it turn out in reality as it was conceived and designed in our heads. Congratulations to Canadian Timberframes for not losing sight of our design aspirations during the production of the unique frame structure. This frame defines the home both inside and out; outside with the big curving roof lines and inside with the tall braces and the soaring open feel of the great room.
The selection of fine timbers, with exacting joinery made putting together the structure a breeze as well as a pleasure. The erection of the structure was well under budget because of the materials, the attention to detail of the joinery as well as the superb drawings supplied. Things just clicked and it was up and finished in no time. Kudos to the finishing work done in the shop, the staining and the top coats were expertly done. The package arrived on time and the organization of the bundles made sorting and arranging easy to do.
This is the third structure that I have had the privilege of erecting with the help of Canadian Timberframes, it wont be my last."Bruce
