Timber Frame Construction: Reserved Modern Vs. Grand Classic

Timber Frame and Heavy Timber has always been part of the Whistler architectural vernacular. This tour and seminar, hosted by Roy Manion of BC Wood offering 3 core LUs, explores two recently completed homes on Alta Lake showcasing the contrasting approaches to timber framing - One venue exemplifies clean and contemporary but with the warmth and interest of timber construction, the second venue is best described as an old world lodge with all the comforts and convenience of the modern world.
