"This letter is a short summary of our newly completed Post & Beam Log home located just outside the remote community of Nordegg, AB. We were first introduced to Tyee Log & Timber while attending the Log Home Show in the Spring of 2010 and in late 2010 started working with Tyee to come up with a customized plan. Unlike other builders Tyee worked with us to come up with both a design and estimate for our project before committing. With a general idea of the type and style we were after a number of different options for the floor plan were provided and with a few minor changes we were able to come up with the perfect use of space. In early 2011 we agreed upon a lump sum contract for the lock-up portion of the project and began fabrication of the log structure. By the end of 2011 we had the building completed to lock-up stage and moved forward on the interior finishing portion of the project on an agreed upon cost plus contract basis.
This was one of the big things that separated Tyee from other log builders was their willingness to take the home not only right up to lock up stage but to help us fully complete this home. Lots of other builders seemed willing to sell us a log shell but we really wanted a log builder who would take the project from start to finish. This is definitely one of the area’s that Tyee excelled at, they were able to help guide us along the way with the various decisions that are involved in the construction of any new home as well as manage and co-ordinate all the various sub-trades both local and out of province to ensure that I received both the best quality and pricing!
In late 2012 we completed the home but it wasn’t until 2013 that we were able to fully enjoy our new log home thanks again to the help of Tyee with four beautifully handcrafted log beds, bench and picnic table being added!
We would have no problem recommending Tyee to any of my friends, family or colleagues. The workmanship is absolutely amazing and the log work is an amazing piece of artwork that truly needs to be seen in person to appreciate all the time and efforts that go into a home like this. Invoicing and payment was simple and straight forward, what I really like about Tyee is that I was always paying for the work completed unlike a lot of other contractors who expected to be paid 50% deposits up front prior to any work being completed. Communication was excellent it seemed Tyee was always able to make time for my phone calls and emails. We would personally like to thank everyone at Tyee for all their time and effort’s that went into this magnificent home!"
