Custom Sawn Heavy Timbers and Boards

Our Timbers and Boards are Custom Sawn to specifications at our facility in Malakwa, BC

Like our Custom Handcrafted Log and Timber Frame homes, each order is unique – with each timber and board custom sawn to size. We are very experienced and knowledgable with Timber Frame construction and ensure each timber is milled with precision. We understand that, for Timber Frame Joinery and custom home building, a true and square Timber is very important.
