Our recent work has included timber frames, conventional house building/renovations, marine movie set construction and boat work.

In Chester, Nova Scotia we erected and finished a timber frame boathouse. The joinery was done at our shop in Jeddore (see picture of crew in ‘About Us’) and transported to the site.
The second story of this building is cantilevered all around. The building is finished with Cedar shingles.

Often people find new uses for old frames. We recently erected an old barn on a new site. This is the home for the owner’s collection of canoes and small boats. Some of the old frame had to be repaired or replaced.

Helping boatbuilder Niels Løvstad replace the Teak deck on a 24’ ‘Monark 806’ (www.lovstad.dk). This was done without any mechanical fasteners. The entire deck is glued down using vacuum bag technique.

During the spring of 2005 we prepared the floor-system for a 5000sq.ft. log home by Heartwood (www.heartwood-log-homes.com). We subsequently constructed the roof-system and finished the outside of the structure with Pine trim and Cedar shingles. All interior partitions, stairs and trim were installed with three to four inches of log shrinkage in mind.
This home is a conventional stick-framed house, with a timber-framed second floor system; a masonry heater heats this home more than adequately (www.mha-net.org). We completed this home in time for Christmas 2005.
