Gulf Island Cabin Update!

The Cabin on Cortes Island is just about complete now. The homeowners anticipate completion in the next few weeks and are very happy with the crew that has constructed this cabin. Tamlin supplied the weather tight lock up shell and some interior finishes such as the pine boards for the interior walls, casings, baseboard, trim and the flooring. The homeowners preferred to use as many local suppliers and sub trades as possible to construct the cabin. This cabin had some minor modifications to accommodate their guests. These modification were an extra dormer on in the room in the loft, and a framed walled to make the loft into two rooms. This gave the cabin three bedrooms, a kitchen, bathroom and space for a stacking washer and dryer. The post and beams and exterior walls are solid reclaimed douglas fir.

Cold Lake Alberta Cedar Log Home Update

Progress is great on this amazing cedar log home.  The log home sits majestically in the middle of a large piece of property in Cold Lake Alberta. The roof is on now, and the homeowners will have the exterior stained a rich beautiful red color, which will accent the natural cedar color. Tamlin supplied the log home and assisted with arrangements for a construction crew to build the home. This building crew has helped Tamlin on many projects in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario, and we are never disappointed with their skills, dedication and efficiency. If you are thinking about building, but are concerned with having a home package shipped from BC, worry no more! We are happy to put you in contact with one of our crews when you buy a package from us.

Thetis Island Renovation Update!

Progress is great on this major renovation and the homeowners are very pleased with how smoothly everything is going. We couldn’t have asked or better weather for this project either! Now that the weather has turned in to fall rain and wind, the interior finishing is getting under way. Did you know that Tamlin can per-manufacture tons of components in a home so that in the winter months, getting the home to weather tight lock up stage is fast and saves time on on-site labor costs? We were fortunate that this project happened in the summertime, so there was not a rush to beat the bad weather. If you are thinking about building or renovating, give us a call. We would love to give you information on our process and tell you how we can keep your project on time and on budget.

Thetis Island Renovation

This is a full renovation that is underway on Thetis Island now. Tamlin has built on Thetis before and is very familiar with remote island access and the logistics of such builds. We also have an amazing transportation company that we use for all of our remote builds. He has a truck that fits onto most of the ferries and their height and length restrictions. The homeowners wanted to maintain the waterfront look of this unique cabin and incorporate the original front framed portion to fit into the redesign. The homeowners had outgrown the quaint cabin and wanted a new and larger living space. This new layout has timber frame components and is much larger and open that is was before. The renovation is going and smoothly, on time and on budget. Stay tuned for more updates.

Cold Lake Cedar Log Home Project Update!

In only two weeks our supervision crew and two local carpenters have completed all of the precut milled log installation and continued on to the loft floor and roof framing stages. The western red cedar milled logs look and smell spectacular! The owners are extremely happy with the Tamlin crew and the progress that has been made! Log homes are one of the easiest homes to build. If you are thinking about a log home, give Tamlin a call. We would be happy to provide more information on the process and just how easy it is to have your own log home!

Cold Lake Alberta, Cedar Log Home Project

Another Tamlin custom log home is being built in COLD LAKE , Alberta. Just as the basement and floor system were completed, the main load of house package materials arrived on site.  Tamlin sent two experienced log installers for this 3,000 sq ft custom milled log home. They are supervising the local crew and homeowners who are “hands-on” with construction.  The owners Carrie and Tim,  are thrilled with the quality of the solid  Western Red Cedar logs and they commented that the natural smell of the cedar is “awesome”.   

The logs are completely pre-cut, pre-drilled, pre-notched (corners), and even have pre-routered receptacles and switch boxes,  to make electrical finishing simple. The log walls are anticipated to be completed by the end of next week. Stay tuned for more blogs from COLD LAKE!

Tamlin Homes Wins Design Award

Tamlin Homes Head OfficeThe Fraser Valley Real Estate Board awarded Tamlin International Homes the 2012 Commercial Building Award in recognition of our Excellence in the Renovation/Restoration of our office.

Our custom post and beam facility in Aldergrove incorporates “state-of-the-art” technology such as an underground geothermal heating and cooling system as well as Eco-friendly “soya based” spray foam insulation which provides over R40 energy efficiency.  With an air re-circulation system that brings in the fresh air continuously and is preheated by the air leaving the building, heating and cooling our building is all but “free”.

All of the windows that were installed in our building are LOW “E3” coated with argon gas and have a special optional “NEAT” glass that allows the water to trickle off with a simple washing.  Bonus – our windows stay nice and clean throughout the seasons.

Tamlin’s contribution to the local environment also includes a special water catchment system and “gravel” driveway which actually contains the rain water runoff to save our environment from overflows.
