Myrna & Rodney Brownlee – Major Renovation Thetis Island BC
We were very pleased with all the services and the products that Tamlin supplied during our renovation. Chris came out, looked around, took some pictures, listened to our wish list and budget and then came up with this amazing design. Paul and Greg then put it all together. We were able to make changes as we went along. The materials were better than most of the products that were available on Vancouver Island. The contractor was able to talk with Greg whenever necessary. None of the material was damaged during shipping. The carpenters were often commenting on how nice the materials were to work with (especially the cedar shakes). We often get comments from our guests on the quality of the doors. I think for someone planning a building or a renovation that lives on an island Tamlin is the best way to go.
Mr & Mrs Ohlhauser
Initially when we saw your website and pictures of your product we thought it would be out of our price range, based on other enquires with other companies, but decided to visit you anyway. We were pleasantly surprised from the very start with the friendliness, helpfulness and experience of your staff. They have been most helpful in explaining your product and services. They have helped us with a design within our budget and have been most accommodating with our desire to build as much as possible ourselves. In that regard they have been most helpful with providing support staff or finding professional contractors for areas beyond our ability in a very timely manner. All of the materials supplied met or exceeded expectations and everything listed was delivered. As “do it ourselfers”, we are still in progress but are very happy with the results we are seeing.

. . . staff at Tamlin have treated us as if we were your number one customer, responding to all our questions and changes as if no one else was placing demands on your time. Working with Tamlin has been a truly wonderful experience . . . our construction contractors all remarked on the quality of the products Tamlin supplied. Many said they had not seen such nice quality wood for years . . . it was always exciting to experience the beginning of another phase in the construction so that we could admire the beauty of the wood bundled under Tamlin’s weather protective wrapping . . . your architectural and engineering drawings gave us exactly what we wanted and your materials are far superior to what we would have found locally. Furthermore, the transport of your materials across the international border was painless. In the end, we could not be happier with our new building or more satisfied with the contributions Tamlin made toward making our dream become a reality . . .
Happy Home Owners on Galiano Island, B.C.
. . . from the initial meeting with a cardboard model to the final product of a 6×8 D-Log cottage, everything came together just as planned. Tamlin came through on their quality, service and attention to detail, right through to the final installation of the package. My wife and I were very pleased with the cottage, a dream that has come true for us . . . every step was done in a very orderly and planned manner. The staff had ample experience in putting together a complete package that was thought out meticulously. We were impressed with the timely and important advice, as well as helpful critique to make our cottage work the way it was intended; trouble-free and most comfortable. The products that we have chosen that were recommended by Tamlin was also of top quality . . . thank you Tamlin for making this all possible. You have a great team of staff and a great product . . .(names withheld at owners request)

. . . we would like to express our appreciation for the extra effort and professional assistance you and the people of Tamlin International Homes provided throughout the purchase and construction of our new home on Salt Spring Island. Without your guidance and advice with the design and engineering process, selection of materials, permit applications and subcontractor referrals, I don’t know if we would have been able to make this project happen . . . the people that we had working with us were all impressed with the quality, packaging of the materials Tamlin International supplied. Deliveries were on time and in sequence with the construction phases and we never ran short of anything we needed . . . it was reassuring to know that any technical difficulties we did encounter, or any clarification that we needed with the detailed drawings or the building process, were only a phone call away. This is not our first new home but it is the first one we have built ourselves, from the ground up, and working with Tamlin International has made it a rewarding experience. Should we find ourselves in a position to build again, and we hope to, we will certainly consider working with you again…

We never imagined we would be able to afford a custom log house until Tamlin showed us how. They helped us through all the building steps, offering timely professional advice along the way. From permit stage to final building, Tamlin worked with us through each stage in an organized and efficient way. We got the home of our dreams and saved money.
