Why choose Wise Owl Joinery Co.?
Richard Cormier is a skilled and conscientious craftsman. His skills, honed by years of experience working for a variety of timber frame and log builders as well as in his own business, are matched by a fine creative and aesthetic sense.
We only take on one job at a time and finish it before we start another. That way we are totally focused on you and your project.
We tackle projects large and small.
- full house timber frames,
- timber frame cottages and log cabins,
- hybrid timber frames,
- timber frames for straw bale houses.
- pavilions and pergolas
- timber fences and railings
- timber lamp posts and signs
- custom furniture
- shelves and mantlepieces
We have an extensive inventory of seasoned timbers on hand. Our inventory gives us a great advantage when tackling a new project.
We use local sawmills for supply, and work with local engineering and design firms who specialize in timber framing.
Forming a team with architects, engineers, general contractors and designers, we believe in good communication from the start to avoid problems later.
All the work is pre-fabricated and finished in our shop and shipped throughout the Maritimes and afar. We erect all of our work on your site.
We love what we do, and have created an incredible workshop to do it in.
Take a look at our gallery, which offers a collection of short stories and illustrates our attention to quality and the fine craft of timber framing.
When you're ready to explore your ideas further, a visit to our 1867 property and display of timber structures will get you excited. Enjoy a cup of tea under our pavillion for a relaxed informal first meeting. It will give us a sense of what your needs are and you should leave with a clear picture of the process of timber framing. A scheduled tour of several local jobs will give you a first hand look and feel what we can do for you.
First come, first served.
