Are you looking for a squared log, timber frame or Durisol ICF building custom made to suit your needs?

No matter whether you are looking for a cabin, a new home or even just a horse shelter, we can fabricate squared log, timber frame and also Durisol ICF structures to match your needs.

We build high quality structures that will last for many decades to come, in addition to being aesthetically pleasing.

Specializing in building energy efficient homes, we are offering innovative insulated log and Durisol ICF walls (cement-bonded wood fibre forms) exceeding current Canadian energy efficency requirements.

All our wall and roof designs are "breathable", meaning that vapour can migrate through the wall without trapping moisture and thus avoiding the formation of mold.

Trained in Europe, we specialize in practical designs that are made to last. Attention to the detail is very important to us in order to create not only solid, but visually appealing structures.

Custom Homes & Buildings

We use many different building products and love taking on projects that are out of the ordinary.

You would like to build this unique off the grid home, use natural materials as much as possible or just build the little, but unique cabin in the woods? This is right up our alley!

Our main building materials are:

  • Squared logs, also as insulated log walls with R-Values from R24 to R40
  • Douglas Fir, spruce and pine timbers sourced from small sustainable forestry operations
  • Durisol Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF)
  • Concrete roof tiles
  • Mineralized wood wool panels (aka Heraklith)
  • European high-quality tilt and turn windows - wood frame with or without aluminum clad
  • Wood fibre & hemp insulation - hemp & wood fibre batts are a healthy and natural choice
  • Pro-Clima high-tech vapour permeable building membranes
  • Gutex wood fibre boards and insulation

We emphasize on healthy, high-performance building materials that are energy efficient, taking advantage of thermal mass. Our buildings are designed and made to last for generations.

In all our projects we use superior quality European tilt & turn wood windows with or without exterior aluminum clad depending on your preference.

There is no project too small.

Take advantage of our European craftsmanship skills and knowledge of state of the art green, high-performance building materials. You are welcome to take a look at some of our projects by appointment.
