“Building with wood must be considered the wellspring of architectural design.”   Herman Phleps


Good planning at the preliminary stage is essential to effective building.  It is a creative process accomplishing very practical goals.  Be pragmatic-with soul.  Honour the inherent beauty of wood, achieve the greatest possible effect within the design and budget constraints.


budget-size-quality - two realities determines the third



 We can provide

  • conceptual sketches and suggestions
  • in-house design and drafting - preliminary and final plan sets for smaller projects
  • structural timber design input for the chosen designer showing full-frame or specific details, joinery and design options
  • on more extensive projects we like to be part of the team - assisting your designer / architect, general contractor and engineer with the information needed to deliver the best possible services to you
  • we will work with your design/build team, provide a team for you, or refer you to competent professionals with whom we work closely
  • we always complete a preliminary plan review, not simply for bid purposes, but as importantly to address any issues that may result in errors, revisions, or just preferable design opportunities.  We know that good analysis of design and connection details in the early stages, accurate math and a proofed final plan are essential for a dynamic, efficient construction flow
  • when scope of work is defined, a contract, timetable, and fee schedule will be established to the mutual benefit of the builder and customer

Our passion is to provide great work for a broad range of building budgets, blending craftsmanship with modern construction technologies, creating a naturally inviting space that will sustain future generations.
