…thank you for all that you have done to help us realize our dream home. From our first phone call, when we began to realize that a Tamlin timber frame home could be a possibility, to the present as we continue with construction, your company has been accommodating and patient. Thank you for your time , patience, expertise and your understanding that this was an adventure for my family, sometimes a little scary, but your company has actually made the whole project fun.

– Built on Texada Island, B.C. – Round House-Frame
Haruyo says . . . Our cottage at Texada Island has become a landmark of the village of Van Anda. We say “we built the round house”, and most everybody says, ”Oh I know where it is!” People know because of its unique design and the beautiful cedar exterior finishing. The house, thanks to Tamlin, is round (to be precise, 24 sided), with a 15 ft ceiling and a large round sky light supported by four impressive Douglas Fir log posts at the center of the house . . . a tasteful combination of wood species is also a characteristic of this house . . . from the planning stage to the finishing stage, Paul and Peter at Tamlin provided excellent communication with us, explained in detail, helped us select materials, and always showed us clearly the cost information . . .
From Neil … The house is very nice and was built very efficiently….It even ended up costing a bit less than the earlier estimates….I would recommend Tamlin to anyone. They came up with the design for what they called and “Irish round house” (because they had built one already in Ireland). Peter and Paul answered every question we thought of and many that we didn’t think of. The service was always excellent . . . it’s true that the house has become something of a local landmark and not just on Texada Island . . . Tamlin is a very good company . . . I don’t think you could go wrong working with them . . .

. . . thank you Tamlin team for making our dream cottage possible. We will no longer be able to refer to it as a cottage as it is more fittingly a country home but nonetheless the Tamlin touch clearly was the touch we needed . . . I was particularly impressed at how you listened to what we wanted in a building, asking questions and then putting the concepts together for review . . . I want you to know that the fact you didn’t charge us for the extra two trusses and a few sheets of OSB and framing material did not go unnoticed . . . we also appreciated your honesty in guiding us along with the decisions on details . . . the quality of the lumber and packaging of it for shipment was as you promised; top quality and logical in it’s packaging. The building inspector and others that stopped by all remarked on how clean and straight the lumber was. Your method of packaging the lumber up into logical lifts and the documentation explaining what was in each package and its intended use made the framing very efficient and with little waste and confusion….

– Built in Nagano, Japan – Custom Frame
. . . my wife and I imported everything we needed to build a North American style house in Japan, saving a bundle I might add. I am very satisfied with the service we received from Tamlin. It’s easy to get good service before the purchase is made. After is the key. The guys at Tamlin helped me through the various stages of building, and even gave advice to our builder, even AFTER all the materials had been delivered and all transactions completed. That is great service . . .

. . . I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the professional support you provided to make this project the success that it turned out to be. Your firm delivered everything promised and, then some. The advice you gave in the use of particular construction materials was very helpful and went beyond the knowledge of the architect and other advisers we were using. Thank you again for assisting us! It was a pleasure doing business with your firm . . .
