Tour Guided by Tamlin International Homes
Just a 12-minute drive north of Whistler Village, B.C., WedgeWoods Properties encompasses 600 acres spread across a terraced mountain valley with year-round sun, hiking and biking trails, vast acreage estate properties, and 350 acres of protected wilderness. This session will focus on a guided tour of a newly-built modern style west coast post & beam home in WedgeWoods, customized for a local Whistler couple’s lifestyle, growing family, and lot configuration.
Through the insight of the custom builder (Tamlin International Homes Ltd), this tour and presentation examines the Design-Build process from conceptual plans, to budgets and planning, permit plans, hiring of professionals, managing of all materials and labour for construction, and final delivery to owner. On-site structural components will be featured including ICF foundation (insulated concrete forms), factory built pre-fabricated wall panels, precut-ready to install glue laminated beams/timber frame, engineered wood components, exterior insulation, factory pre-stained sidings, and other energy efficient technology. Also covered will be on-site installation and environmental advantages in factory-built house packages, including less waste, less on-site labor, fewer vehicle deliveries, adaptation to remote locations, and constructing efficiently (especially to “lock up”) within seasonal limitations.
