Are you ready to build your custom timber frame home?

“Every time I come home, I’m welcomed with such a “safe & warm” feeling.”

I’m not sure exactly what to write, other than how much I love it & am enjoying living in it! It feels so solid & peaceful, like a miniature castle...with my chunky black light fixtures & the stone wall, & heavy beams. Every time I come home, I’m welcomed with such a “safe & warm” feeling, looking at the wooden beams, & up at the high ceilings...It makes me very happy.I made all the decisions about things like lights, tiles, flooring, colours, window coverings, etc, but it was Shane (Shanise Enterprises) who made it all happen. It’s been a labour of love for everyone I think. I can’t wait to have a huge house-warming party for everyone involved on the porch that will soon be completed.I was also impressed by the personal way Eleanor and Canadian Timberframes, would email and even visit to see how things were going.


“We really appreciate your skills and professionalism as you guide us through the design phase.”

David, Tiffiny, and Phil, I wanted to let you know how much we appreciate all of your work in helping us create a fantastic home. The 3D images today really helped us see how great the timbers are going to look, and brought it all together for us. We are very excited.

We really appreciate your skills and professionalism as you guide us through the design phase. We made the right choice with CTF. Thanks so much.


“Thank-you Canadian Timberframes for all your time and support, you rock!”

Building our Life long dream home with Canadian Timberframes LTD has been nothing short of an amazing adventure. They have been there every step of the way, shining like a bright star, solving everything and anything on our building journey. There staff is kind, friendly, understanding, patient..a big one for us (anyone that has built or bought a home knows it can be trying at times!!) Words cannot even describe how pleased we have been with them. They are definitely a great company for families as they are like one themselves!! Our home building process has been a long journey and it still continues today, as we chose to do a lot of the work ourselves. Canadian Timber Frames was still there to help us a year after we put up our structure, providing us with ideas and interior finishing wood. I know they will still be there after year two when we take on building a deck for our beautiful home. We will definitely do business with them again and again if the opportunity for us is there. Thank-you Canadian Timberframes for all your time and support, you rock!!!

“Overall, the whole experience from Canadian Timber Frames was excellent with great information and prompt responses.”

The reason I chose Canadian Timber Frames was that you had the best communication right from the start. I contacted a few competitors before you and did not have good results with the initial conversation. Overall, the whole experience from Canadian Timber Frames was excellent with great information and prompt responses. Even today, over 3 years since that first phone call, the customer service is top notch. I recommend to everyone who asks about the house to look you guys up. I’d be more than happy to show off this house, as it has been one large project.


“Working with our architect, Canadian Timberframes Limited (CTF) was brought in for timber frame consultation, design, and supply.”

When it came time to build our getaway cottage, as well as a vacation retreat for our extended family on Vancouver Island’s Pacific side, we were drawn to a timber frame design but with a contemporary twist to suite the rain forest setting and our active, casual lifestyle. Working with our architect, Canadian Timberframes Limited (CTF) was brought in for timber frame consultation, design, and supply. During the design phase, CTF was extremely professional and responsive working with our architect and structural engineer in getting the technical design right. Simultaneously, CTF was very patient and constructive in working with us in customizing the timber frame style to suit our unique tastes. Moreover, during the construction phase, CTF was very active and participatory working with our local, general contractor in getting the dimensions just right so the framing and assembly went perfectly. Above all, the quality was superb, the costs were within budget, and the construction was on time. Of course, the final proof is in the finished product. Not only did the finished timber home exceed our expectations, but the home has garnered several gold awards from the Canadian Home Builders Association at the regional, provincial, and national levels. In addition, the home has also been featured in several home and living magazines. The most recent has been in the Timber Home Living magazine, Annual Buyers Guide, 2012 edition. Finally, we would highly recommend Canadian Timberframes Limited for any timber frame project for all the reasons above.

“Lois and I are both extremely pleased with the end product.”

And after two years still have people stopping by to take a look inside. Let everyone know at CTF that their craftsmanship and the detail that went into the product in this build has been greatly appreciated and we would be proud to see our lake house project shared.

“The dream of our home design has become a reality for us.”

Robyn and I would like you all to know that the dream of our home design has become a reality for us. The intent of the design shines through against the mountain backdrop of the Columbia valley. I think it is rare to find a synergy between the designer and the timberframe team that come into the project cold and have it turn out in reality as it was conceived and designed in our heads. Congratulations to Canadian Timberframes for not losing sight of our design aspirations during the production of the unique frame structure. This frame defines the home both inside and out; outside with the big curving roof lines and inside with the tall braces and the soaring open feel of the great room. The selection of fine timbers, with exacting joinery made putting together the structure a breeze as well as a pleasure. The erection of the structure was well under budget because of the materials, the attention to detail of the joinery as well as the superb drawings supplied. Things just clicked and it was up and finished in no time. Kudos to the finishing work done in the shop, the staining and the top coats were expertly done. The package arrived on time and the organization of the bundles made sorting and arranging easy to do. This is the third structure that I have had the privilege of erecting with the help of Canadian Timberframes, it wont be my last.


“We reached out to a number of companies and ultimately settled on Canadian Timberframes. In hindsight it was one of the best decisions we made.”

When we decided to tear down our old cabin and rebuild at the lake it was important to us to maintain a relaxed and rustic yet modern feel. We have always loved the coziness of timber frame homes and felt it was the perfect setting to build one of our own. We reached out to a number of companies and ultimately settled on Canadian Timberframes. In hindsight it was one of the best decisions we made. David and the team at Canadian Timberframes were so easy to work with. Despite some distance they were always responsive and communication was really effortless. From start to finish, this company was a pleasure to work with and the end product speaks for itself. We absolutely love our new lake house! You are all truly exceptional and skilled at what you do and we are so glad we partnered with you to build us a home we can truly enjoy for many years to come. Many thanks!

“Everyone was always ready to jump in and help make the build successful.”

Any time I was aware of issues or questions, someone from Canadian Timberframes was available to respond or make it right. Everyone was always ready to jump in and help make the build successful. I see this as an indication of how a company sees itself and what their value to a customer is. The pride in what Canadian Timberframes provides does not stop when a package leaves your plant but continues through completion of a customer project. Every person makes a difference in the customer perception of what you do.


“We are so happy with our house and that we chose CTF!”

CTF has been great to work with and the quality of the products, especially the timbers have exceeded our expectations! They’re stunning!


“This is why we continue to come back to you all, time and time again.”

Is this what that frame was supposed to look like? We don't think it was supposed to be this beautiful, was it?!! Thanks so very much to you and your staff for helping to create such an amazing part of our house...And send our heartfelt thanks to the team who pulled off getting our order done in time. We truly didn’t expect it and really appreciate the effort and tremendous quality of the product!

Frequently Asked Questions

From understanding the design process to navigating construction timelines, we’ve compiled a list of the most commonly asked questions to ensure you have all the information you need. Explore our FAQs for detailed insights and practical advice on making your dream home a reality with Canadian Timberframes.

How much does a timber frame cost?

Our timber frame package usually falls between $55-$65 per square foot. This package includes the timber frame design and 3D modeling, detailed shop drawings, and the processing & finishing of the Douglas-fir timber frame.

Do you ship to my area?

If a truck, boat or barge can get there then so can our frames. With over 25 years in business, we've shipped our frames across North America and international including states such as Alaska, Montana, Washington, Colorado, Kentucky, Michigan, Maryland, New Hampshire, New York, and many more. We have shipped timber frame across Canada to every province and shipped product internationally in containers.

"You're in Western Canada and I'm in Eastern USA. Isn't shipping going to be a big expense?"

Our location along the Trans Canada corridor allows us easy access to building sites anywhere in North America and gives us an advantage when sourcing transport companies. Also remember that the Douglas-fir for your frame will likely be coming from our area anyways, so shipping would be built into the cost at some point.

What are the advantages of choosing a timber frame home over a log home for high-end luxury living?

Timber frame homes offer several advantages over log homes for high-end luxury living, including:

Design Flexibility: Timber frame construction allows for greater design flexibility, with the ability to create custom layouts, expansive open spaces, and intricate architectural details.

Architectural Elegance: The exposed wooden beams and joinery of a timber frame home exude architectural elegance and craftsmanship, creating a timeless and sophisticated aesthetic.

Energy Efficiency: Timber frame homes can be highly energy-efficient when combined with modern insulation and HVAC systems, offering year-round comfort and lower utility costs.

Longevity and Durability: Timber frame construction is known for its durability and longevity, with structures that can last for generations with proper maintenance and care.

How does the pricing of a timber frame home vary based on design complexity?

The pricing of a timber frame home is influenced by various factors, including design complexity. Intricate designs with custom features, curved timbers, or complex roof structures may require additional engineering and craftsmanship, resulting in higher construction costs compared to simpler designs. Our team works closely with clients to tailor the design to their preferences and budget, ensuring transparency and value throughout the process.

Do you offer hybrid timber frame options?

We can produce everything from fully structural timber framed homes to hybrid frames (part timber/part conventional framing), exterior decks and decorative gable trusses & brackets. Our portfolio showcases large residential homes, commercial structures and resorts, but also includes hundreds of smaller homes, cottages, barns & out buildings, pergolas and timber bridges. We've pretty much done it all.

How long does it take to manufacture your timber frame?

Manufacturing the timber frame is one of the quicker parts of the construction process. Once your plans are developed and signed off we require minimum 6-8 weeks lead time for the processing, finishing and delivery of the frame and material package. However, we have a very large log & timber inventory which allows us to fast-track projects when necessary to meet most delivery requirements.

Can you provide a range of pricing for timber frame homes based on different design complexities and quality levels?

Yes, we offer a range of pricing options for timber frame homes based on design complexity, quality of materials, and level of craftsmanship. Our team will work closely with you to understand your vision and budget requirements, providing detailed cost estimates and recommendations to ensure that your home exceeds your expectations without exceeding your budget. Whether you're seeking a simple and elegant retreat or a grand and luxurious estate, we have the expertise and resources to bring your vision to life with precision and professionalism.

How does the pricing of a timber frame home compare to a log home of similar size and quality?

While both timber frame and log homes offer unique aesthetic appeal and structural integrity, there are differences in construction techniques and material costs that can impact pricing. Timber frame homes typically feature exposed wooden beams and open floor plans, emphasizing craftsmanship and architectural detail. Log homes, on the other hand, are constructed using whole logs stacked horizontally, creating a solid and rustic appearance. The pricing of each home depends on factors such as design complexity, timber species, and finishing materials. Decisions really come down to your preference and budget both can be done within a certain budget.
