After coming to Canada in 1999 to help establish timberframing in the Golden area, Swiss master timberframer Sigi Liebmann set up International Timberframes in 2003. He quickly became known as the go-to wood expert offering advice, ideas, inspiration and individual solutions. International Timberframes are still based in Golden BC.
International Timberframes was borne out of Sigi's love of wood and his desire to show it's the most natural and healthy product to build with. With his team of highly skilled timberframers he is passionate about the human art and human touch involved: they cut and prepare by hand, making the most of each unique piece of wood in a way no machine can, using traditional craftsman skills.
The team proudly uses state of the art technologies in design and planning, and combines them with these traditional hand-cutting skills. Keeping the timberframe craft alive is fundamental to the business.
International TImberframes is now a well established Timberframer in BC and Alberta providing all styles of timberframe work, from modern and contemporary to rustic or traditional. They design, cut and install a wide range of projects:
