A custom option for any Pacific Homes package
- Cosmetic Detailing
- Hybrid Timber/Conventional Framing
- Fully Structural Timber Frames
Timbers can be used in a strictly cosmetic application to give your home the look and feel of timber frame on a conventionally framed structure. Our customers often choose a timber entry, some exterior details, and a few highlights in the interior of the home.
A blend of conventional and timber framing – this option offers the best of both worlds and can have the effect of a full timber structure on a modest budget. Pick and choose where you want timber in your home – a structural roof can be combined with conventionally framed walls and timber highlights for a breathtaking final effect.
For the purist, the main structure of this option is framed in solid timber. A perfect blend of quality and beauty, a full timber frame will last for generations.
Our timber frame homes are built to last generations. Each mortise and tenon joint is carefully cut and hand-finished to ensure a perfect, tight fit. The strength and durability of this type of wood joinery is as impressive as the finished look. Where engineering requires steel reinforcement, we have the option of exposing steel hardware or concealing it inside the joinery, dependant on style preferences.
Timbers can be joined with steel, concrete or traditional framing as needed. Our draftsmen can assist you to seamlessly integrate timbers into any building plan with final approval by qualified engineers.
Our timbers are planed, hand-sanded and stained or oiled to your specifications. We use premium quality stains and finishes that offer the best wear and longevity possible.
Our custom timber frame packages reflect a level of quality spawned from the European heritage of our trade. We carry on the tradition of old-world craftsmanship in each project we complete. In every aspect of a job – design, materials selected, manufacturing process and delivery – you can be assured that our attention to detail and care in construction is the best in the industry.
Located in the heart of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, we have access to the best supply of Douglas Fir, red and yellow Cedar and other prime fibre.
Each timber is grade #1 / better and free of heartwood. The combination of wood quality and workmanship ensures that your timber frame will look as good in 20 years as it did when it was built.
