My timber inspiration.
I had long dreamed of building my own home out in the heart of the wilderness.
The obvious line of thought would be to go with a log structure because traditionally that could be done with just an axe. I had always had a passion for log building and it wasn't until later that I developed a desire to work with timber frames.
I was fortunate to be introduced to Clemens Esser a German timber craftsman from my home town McBride, BC in 2008.
I was enthralled with the history and beauty of Western Europe architecture and when I discovered this construction style was available in North America I knew immediately that this was something I would love make my professional trade in life. So I did. I read books, went to school, and later was again fortunate enough to work along side Clemens, the same German craftsman who initially inspired me, for a time period of over 8 months.
I have since grown my style from Clemens to be of my own, and now have an even better appreciation of the history and art of timber framing.
