One of Tamlin’s specialties is using solid Douglas fir timbers in our prefabricated homes. This premier wood species from British Columbia is sought after as one of the best structural softwoods due to its strength, durability and appearance.
Another benefit of Tamlin’s Douglas fir timbers is that Tamlin deals directly at the mill-level rather than with retailers, since the specifications of our Douglas fir timbers are so unique. This procedure benefits both Tamlin and the customer since Tamlin can act as a “one-stop shop”. Each piece is individually cut and graded at the mill. When we precut and manufacture your home, we even place the best face of the timbers where you will see them.
Prestaining at the factory is another option to protect them during construction and reduce labour on-site. Tamlin does all timber prestaining in-house at our factory in the Lower Mainland.
