We love what we do! It’s truly rewarding to work with great families to design and build their dream homes. Indeed, most of the homes we work on are a result of many careful years of planning, researching, and reflection. We treat each project - from preparing designs, selecting timbers, to crafting the joinery - as if we were building our own home.
Based in Kimberley, BC, Tyee Log and Timber has been designing and building handcrafted log and timber frame structures since 2003. The principals of the firm, both second generation Canadian builders, have over 40 combined years experience in project management, on-site construction, and log and timber construction experience:
At Tyee, we specialize in exceptional handcrafted structures for both the private and public sectors. We choose to work collaboratively with the owner, architect, engineer, and other consultants to deliver a successful project.
Our log builders, timber framers, and designers are among the best trained and most dedicated craftsmen in the industry. Drawing from a diverse background and skill set, they constantly strive to produce the highest quality of detail and innovative solutions.
We operate on a six-acre facility in Kimberley, British Columbia, Canada. This site allows us ample room to store and season our log inventory of Western Red Cedar and Douglas Fir. Proper seasoning of these massive timbers is vital for minimizing shrinkage and movement in wood homes.
We buy from sustainably managed forests, community groups, and local woodlot owners and we have access to some of the best timber in BC. To ensure superior energy efficiency, we use performance path and run blower-door tests on all of our homes.
Our sister company, Tyee Custom Homes, designs and constructs eight to twelve custom homes each year, under Design-Build contracts. Through Tyee Custom Homes, we work together with carpenters trained in foundations, framing, siding, and finishing. Tyee Custom Homes is a Built Green Canada member and has received several awards for energy efficient homes, including platinum level. Click Here to visit Tyee Custom Homes
