Tamlin has been designing and building custom residential homes for over 30 years. We have helped homeowners build their dream homes and cabins across British Columbia including the Gulf Islands and the Sunshine Coast.
With our timber frame or log home material house package we can assist you with supervising and framing your home to a lock-up or dried-in stage or a complete turnkey build from start to finish. You have the flexibility, according to your resources to choose the amount of involvement you want and we can do the rest.
We take the time to custom design and plan your project. A typical Tamlin timber frame home package includes full construction and permit drawings and building materials to get you to the “lock up” stage of construction. With every home package, we help you plan, design, budget, schedule and coordinate your project.
