A unique West Coast Modern design by Etienne de Villiers located near Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Featuring Douglas Fir glulam timberframe, this home is modern, yet comfortable and warm – signature traits of a West Coast Contemporary design.

Located on a high ridge of Denman Island, the design emulates a bridge with the master suite and living areas on one side, the guest rooms and amenities on the other and a bridge structure housing the main living area and kitchen. This glorious home captures the best elements of West Coast living with 360 views of the forest, ocean and Beaufort Mountain range across Baynes sound.

We built this home on an island with ferry access, so detailed pre-planning was imperative. Our crew pre-cut and test fitted all of the members in our shop for an easy installation on-site, which made for a very smooth construction process.


We have had the opportunity and privilege to work with Island Timber Frame on different projects for several years now. The professionalism and dedication they put into their work gives us and our clients the tranquillity and confidence that their work will meet our expectations and more. Their expertise, attention to detail and work excellence is invaluable to us. Island Timber Frame always delivers on time and budget.

We highly recommend Island Timber Frame for any projects. Their expertise has made every single project a complete success and working with them is always a pleasure.
