Timbercoast started as a custom handmade furniture operation, making refined, functional pieces from West Coast Douglas Fir and Cedar. Cedar is a durable, renewable, and endlessly transformable material that has built societies all over the Northwest Coast of British Columbia for thousands of years.

A love of woodworking and using the incredible wood species available on Vancouver Island naturally led to Timbercoast expanding into contracting and construction services, renovations, remodeling, and building maintenance.

Unimpressed with the local building industry’s tendency towards unskilled, overcharged, and inefficient projects, we set out to do things differently. No Timbercoast job is “just a job.” Every project we do is a contribution to your business and property, accomplished with a high level of attention to detail.

We’re different because we’re invested in the process. Happy clients across the island can attest to our skills, experience and work ethic. We love interesting projects, no matter how small, that have challenges or “cool” aspects.

When we’re not getting covered in sawdust, Timbercoasters are hiking the rugged corners of Vancouver Island, looking for elk antlers or other outdoor enthusiasts who have lost their way with Search and Rescue.. 


Timbercoast has completed countless projects at the Crow and Gate Pub for over a decade. Attention to detail, working around my operational hours and always maintaining a safe and very clean worksite make Lance my first call for any project whether large or small.

When we are faced with a project that presents any kind of unusual challenge we don't hesitate to call Lance at Timbercoast. We have worked with him for years and are always impressed with his creative, well thought out approaches to any situation. His years of experience and wealth of knowledge always provide the best, most efficient and creative solution and his integrity and sense of fairness mean that we can usually count on the project coming in 'on budget' in addition to being completed to standards of quality above our expectations.

I have felt fortunate to have had Lance work on several projects over the years. I would recommend him to anybody I know as he is a great craftsman, is a professional and authentic work horse.

Methodical planning, attention to detail, a broad scope of knowledge in all aspects of construction, water / septic systems, furniture and fine finishing - attributes that Lance brings to every project. I highly recommend Timbercoast for integrity, reliability, safety and getting the job done on time and budget.
