Tyee Log & Timber is a handcrafted log & timber frame builder, based in Kimberley, BC. Tyee has been designing and building log & heavy timber structures since 2003. The principals of our firm, both second generation builders, have over 40 combined years experience in Project Management, on-site construction and log & timber construction experience.
Tyee specializes in designing and building exceptional handcrafted log and timber structures. We design and build many log and timber structures each year for a range of clients - both private and public. We choose to work collaboratively with the Owner, architect, engineer and other consultants to deliver a successful project.
Our Craftsmen are some of the best trained and most dedicated craftsmen in our industry. They constantly strive to produce better log & timber detailing and innovative solutions to log & timber connections. We employ many log builders, timber framers and designers from a diverse background and skill-set.
We operate on a six acre facility in Kimberley, BC. This site allows us ample room to purchase, store and season log inventory of Western Red Cedar and Douglas Fir building logs. With the massive wood incorporated into our structures, it is important that all wood is properly seasoned to avoid excess shinkage and timber movement. We have access to some of the best timber in BC and purchase from sustainably managed forests, community groups and local woodlot owners.
In addition, our sister company, Tyee Custom Homes, designs and constructs 8-12 custom homes each year under Design-Build contracts. With Tyee Custom Homes, we have access to carpenters trained in foundations, framing, siding and finishing. We constantly work together to improve the design, details and installation of log and timber structures. Tyee Custom Homes is a Built Green Canada member and has received several awards for energy efficient homes, built from bronze to platinum standards.
