"Often when I speak about Canadian Timberframes, my enthusiasm for their product, service, and quality is so deep with detail that  people mistakenly think I work for them.  In the mid 80's and early 90's we were building timber frame homes by hand. Designing on paper a one dimensional timber frame plan, then laying out all the mortises and tenons for others to rough out so that I could come behind and fit and finish the joinery. My experience has given me a wide perceptive and  gratitude for the comprehensive service CTF provides. Working with Canadian Timberframes is like working with a professional supportive friend who stays with you until the homeowner turns the key to their beautiful timber frame masterpiece."

"Any time I was aware of issues or questions, someone from Canadian Timberframes was available to respond or make it right.  Everyone was always ready to jump in and help make the build successful.  I see this as an indication of how a company sees itself and what their value to a customer is.  The pride in what Canadian Timberframes provides does not stop when a package leaves your plant but continues through completion of a customer project.  Every person makes a difference in the customer perception of what you do."

"The wall systems they are building are hands down the best I have ever seen. Every component in the wall from the hold downs to the siding is thought of  before construction and because of the CAD drawings everything is in place precisely where it is needed. The walls will arrive on site and only need to be stood in place.  We will cut weeks off the field construction time and end up what a superior product ready to accept the next phase of the process.  I would definitely like to use this system on all exterior walls on the main floor.

We spent considerable time with his drafting/design team and reviewing the plans they produce.  The level of quality and detail on the blueprints is on a commercial scale - its all there - in detail.  I have never worked with such a complete and detail set of plans in residential construction. All in all I am very glad that I went up to see their operation.  I know that your project will not be the only one that I do with Jeff and his company."

I’m not sure exactly what to write, other than how much I love it & am enjoying living in it! It feels so solid & peaceful, like a miniature castle...with my chunky black light fixtures & the stone wall, & heavy beams. Every time I come home, I’m welcomed with such a “safe & warm” feeling, looking at the wooden beams, & up at the high ceilings...It makes me very happy.

I made all the decisions about things like lights, tiles, flooring, colours, window coverings, etc,  but it was Shane (Shanise Enterprises) who made it all happen. It’s been a labour of love for everyone I think. I can’t wait to have a huge house-warming party for everyone involved on the porch that will soon be completed.

I was also impressed by the personal way Eleanor and Canadian Timberframes, would email and even visit to see how things were going.

“The reason I chose Canadian Timber Frames was that you had the best communication right from the start.  I contacted a few competitors before you and did not have good results with the initial conversation.  Overall, the whole experience from Canadian Timber Frames was excellent with great information and prompt responses.  Even today, over 3 years since that first phone call, the customer service is top notch.  I recommend to everyone who asks about the house to look you guys up.  I’d be more than happy to show off this house, as it has been one large project.”

"I was up last week during the raising; the timber frame package is nothing less than incredible. The product supplied and the way it fit together is impressive. It has been great working with you and all of the folks from CTF! I would highly recommend your company in the future."

"When it came time to build our getaway cottage, as well as a vacation retreat for our extended family on Vancouver Island’s Pacific side, we were drawn to a timber frame design but with a contemporary twist to suite the rain forest setting and our active, casual lifestyle.

Working with our architect, Canadian Timberframes Limited (CTF) was brought in for timber frame consultation, design, and supply. During the design phase, CTF was extremely professional and responsive working with our architect and structural engineer in getting the technical design right. Simultaneously, CTF was very patient andconstructive in working with us in customizing the timber frame style to suite our unique tastes. Moreover, during the construction phase, CTF was very active and participatory working with our local, general contractor in getting the dimensions just right so the framing and assembly went perfectly. Above all, the quality was superb, the costs were within budget, and the construction was on time.

Of course, the final proof is in the finished product. Not only did the finished timber home exceed our expectations, but the home has garnered several gold awards from the Canadian Home Builders Association at the regional, provincial, and national levels. In addition, the home has also been featured in several home and living magazines. The most recent has been in the Timber Home Living magazine, Annual Buyers Guide, 2012 edition. Finally, we would highly recommend Canadian Timberframes Limited for any timber frame project for all the reasons above."

"Building our Life long dream home with Canadian Timberframes LTD has been nothing short of an amazing adventure. They have been there every step of the way, shining like a bright star, solving everything and anything on our building journey. There staff is kind, friendly, understanding, patient..a big one for us (anyone that has built or bought a home knows it can be trying at times!!) Words cannot even describe how pleased we have been with them. They are definitely a great company for families as they are like one themselves!! Our home building process has been a long journey and it still continues today,  as we chose to do a lot of the work ourselves. Canadian Timber Frames was still there to help us a year after we put up our structure, providing us with ideas and interior finishing wood. I know they will still be there after year two when we take on building a deck for our beautiful home. We will definitely do business with them again and again if the opportunity for us is there. Thank-you Canadian Timberframes for all your time and support, you rock!!!"

"I recently had the extreme pleasure of working with the people and product of Canadian Timberframes. I have worked with other timber frame companies in the past and although they’ve been good, Canadian Timberframes went way beyond all the others! The product arrived on site carefully wrapped and very secure. The lifts all contained a written breakdown of everything in each bundle, making checking of materials before build very easy to do.  The blueprints were very clear and concise. 

We had a large amount of timbers and everything thing fitted together perfectly! With only one joint in the entire build requiring a simple chiseling of a 1/16” to make the fit. Any questions I had were dealt with quickly and the answers were certainly clear! I did not have one issue on this build, and that is not something you can say about most builds.

All fasteners were provided, and they didn’t cheap out and give you exactly what you need, there was always extras, which really is what you want. Each timber piece was beautifully finished and the pre-built wall panels made the job very fast. These were well constructed and about the only thing I’d change about them is to use a silicone between sections to ensure air tight seals. The people at Canadian Timberframes are truly amazing to work with, from the sales to designers to the shippers. You really will never deal with a better company! All Timber Frame builds in the future of my company will be from Canadian Timberframes."

"Lois and I are both extremely pleased with the end product and after two years still have people stopping by to take a look inside. Let everyone know at CTF that their craftsmanship and the detail that went into the product in this build has been greatly appreciated and we would be proud to see our lake house project shared."

"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."

"We have worked with Canadian Timberframes on several projects and have nothing but good things to say about them.  From our initial conversations, the design process, and the finished product, we have been impressed with their material knowledge, attention to detail, exceptional computer modeling, and their commitment to customer service. We would highly recommend them for any project, big or small.  Our clients have always been pleased with the finished products and we can't thank Canadian Timberframes enough for providing such exceptional service."

"Is this what that frame was supposed to look like? We don't think it was supposed to be this beautiful, was it?!! Thanks so very much to you and your staff for helping to create such an amazing part of our house...And send our heartfelt thanks to the team who pulled off getting our order done in time. We truly didn’t expect it and really appreciate the effort and tremendous quality of the product! This is why we continue to come back to you all, time and time again."
