Burnaby Custom Home Builder & Major Renovations Since 1977


Hello Burnaby! Tamlin Custom West Coast Homes Ltd. was established in 1977 as a custom residential home builder. The company is based in Coquitlam BC near Hwy 1.


Here in Coquitlam we have our ‘Post and Beam’ head office (Show Room) and factory located in Abbotsford BC. Our “Show Room” office provides us with the perfect place to meet clients to plan their new custom home from the conceptual planning stage through to final building permits and construction. We will help you with all the stages of the building process and a lot more. Working with a budget, we will definitely keep it on track.

Tamlin is a fully licensed general contractor registered with the HPO (Home Protection Office) of B.C. We welcome you to visit our office or let us know if you want to see our homes completed or on the go in the Burnaby and surrounding areas.

Tamlin’s building experience over the past 30 years has allowed us to diversify into one of the premier West Coast Custom builders specializing in a hybrid approach to natural materials, prefabricated building methods and Timber Frame. While Tamlin’s specialty is Timber Frame and Post & Beam construction, we often integrate an optimal selection of natural wood features in a home based on the clients wishes. Our building methods focus on quality and durability but also speed of construction which is a benefit when our rainy climate is considered.

The current trend in urban residential design is a more Contemporary, clean looking, open concept plan. Our professional in-house design staff offer a new level of custom design which incorporates the latest in building technology, energy savings and functional design. Natural and environmentally proven materials are always recommended and these are balanced with the budget in mind.

  • Custom West Coast Contemporary or Traditional
  • Open concept design, vaulted ceilings, clean lines and functional spaces
  • Elegant integration of natural features including wood and timber accents, stone and renewable building materials
  • Completely custom designed to your lifestyle now and in the future
  • Experienced Custom Home Builder – Established in 1977
