Purcell Timber Frame Homes pre-builds in our factory prior to site installation.We prefabricate wall panels, roof panels and prefabricated building components which makes for a much faster total build time and a very precise and accurate building.

Along with a more predictable build time, you will also notice significantly less material waste and a cleaner more efficient building site.


Whether the home is located in Park City Utah, in Alaska, in Revelstoke or Whistler BC, Big Sky country in Montana, or Lake Tahoe in California, the more snow the merrier. Our homes will hold the highest snowfall on record and more. 

We also specialize in oceanfront or lakefront design and building that may have floodplain concerns or strict waterfront setback requirements which may require cantilevering the house to best utilize the site and to take in the views.

We specialize in conventional wood framing as per the strict building codes of British Columbia in Canada and California in the United States. 
All of our buildings are carefully engineered, plan stamped and on-site inspected with final certificate of compliance by structural engineers.

 Our homes are engineered for all of Mother Nature’s live load requirements such as high hurricane winds, seismic earthquakes of the Pacific Ocean coastline (such as the West Coast, California, Oregon, Washington, B.C.) and heavy snow loads of the best ski towns in the world. We love snow and design for lots of it!
