Constructing Your Log or Timber Frame Home

Wall constructionWe use only the finest grade Cedar, Pine, Spruce, and Fir from Western Canada. Western Red Cedar is one of the most stable building materials known for log home construction. Douglas Fir allows for longer spans and gives incredible strength for load bearing and structural timbers. CTH homes are best known for their pleasant aromatic smell and warm, rich colorful wood.

Frame of Timber HomeCTH uses age old logging and milling techniques. We air or kiln dry our timber as well as choose standing-dead, fire/insect-killed timber whenever possible. This reduces moisture content in the timber to control settlement and shrinkage after assembly. We use proven joinery and notching methods like double tongue & groove, Swedish cope, saddle notches for corners, mortise & tenon joints to create a solid, air-tight fit. Thru-bolts (threaded rods) are also incorporated into our log wall systems to control settlement.

Canadian Timber Homes can show you how to build the package yourself, offer construction services, or can provide project management for a complete factory"turn-key" service. We will help you design your dream home, provide plans and construction specifications, technical support, all building materials including doors, windows, cabinets, flooring, stains & finishes and much more.
