Designing beautiful timber frame homes and buildings for over 30 years.
Designing and Crafting Unique Timber Frame Homes Since 1989
Hamill Creek Timber Homes has been dedicated to the tradition of crafting beautiful timber frame homes for over 30 years. Our reputation as one of the world’s premier timber frame companies is built on a foundation of quality, precision, and passion for the time-honored craftsmanship of timber framing. Located in the heart of British Columbia’s beautiful Kootenay region, our timber frame homes are built from some of the finest quality, locally sourced timber in the world.
Green Timber Building
Hamill Creek Timber Frame Homes’ green timber framing styles and building practices enable us to contribute to those clients wishing to build a LEED certified home. All of the Douglas Fir, Western Red Cedar, Spruce, Pine and Larch that we use, is harvested from sustainable and ethically managed forests. After this wood is sourced, the process of turning these logs into timber frames begins at our onsite sawmill, where the logs are hewn into timbers. These timbers are then crafted by our skilled Timberwrights, using a mix of traditional timber framing methods, and modern state of the art technology.
Our team of skilled designers pride themselves on designing a timber frame home that matches the vision of each of our clients. Whether you are starting from a napkin sketch, would like a modification to one of our timber frame home plans, have an architect designed home needing a timber frame incorporated into it, or would like a complete custom timber frame home design, our design team are here to help you achieve your vision .
Timber Frame Kits
Hamill Creek Timber Homes provides complete timber frame kits & packages, which include windows, doors, and wall & roof enclosure systems to support your timber frame house project. We also provide many other wood products to finish your timber frame home, including beautiful stairs and railings.
“The key to our home was the people we brought into our lives to construct it. When we think about the people we brought in, it was like bringing them into our own personal history.”

“Dwight always delivered on his promises to us. He did everything he said he would and more – on time and on budget! His service and craftsmanship far exceeded our expectations. After Hamill Creek set the standard of quality workmanship so high, all the other trades people who worked on our home also did fantastic work. The house is truly a work of art.”

“It has been my pleasure to have worked with Hamill Creek on many completed projects over the last seven years here in Hawaii. Their talent and ability to collaborate during the design phase is significantly productive and fun. Their construction detailing is precise and thorough; and their installation is always timely, if not ahead of schedule, and the craftsmanship is excellent.”

What Makes Our Timber Frame Homes Special
Our timber frame homes are more than just beautiful places to live – they offer a link to the past. The centuries-old craft of hand hewn timber & classic joinery combines beauty and craftsmanship with today’s expectations of comfort. We join our timber frame homes together using traditional hand-hewn wood joinery and oak pegs; this creates a beautifully crafted, fully visible, self-supporting wood framework.
Traditionally our timber frames are crafted from Douglas fir; however, we offer a wide range of species, such as larch, spruce and western red cedar, in a variety of styles and finishes, to suit all budgets, tastes, and locations.
We can custom design timber frame structures in many different styles, giving you the freedom to express your personality. Whether you choose a light-filled, open, airy interior or a cozier atmosphere, your timber house will be a personalized work of art, perfectly matched to your unique style.
We have a team of experts for every part of the process; from the designing, milling and crafting, right up to the raising.
We strive to exceed our customers’ expectations and fulfill their building dreams by delivering personal and attentive service, and awe inspiring timber frame homes.
