Log and Timber Complete Program – Fall 2021
The BC School of Log Building will immerse you in the log and timber world through this comprehensive program combining our Dovetail Log Building course, Timber Frame course, and Saddle Notch Full Scribe Log Building course. Spend 7 weeks in the Rocky Mountains of Canada training with a master log and timber builder learning traditional and contemporary skills and techniques.
**We’re optimistic that we’ll be able to safely and responsibly run our log and timber building courses because they are small groups and take place outside in the fresh air. If we have to cancel the courses due to Covid 19, your deposit will be refunded.**

Our hands-on log building and timber framing courses are offered in the beautiful mountain town of Golden, British Columbia, surrounded in Canada’s National Parks. The British Columbia School of Log building is perfectly situated for immersion in local thriving wood environments, and historical wonder.
The curriculum and teaching methods that we use comply with the standards established by the International Log Builders Association and the BC Log and Timber Building Industry Association. The BC School of Log Building is a division of Stonehouse Woodworks, a thriving log and timber building business. Our exceptional training and comprehensive courses take place at this active log building site and our students experience first hand varying styles of building. We offer saddle notch, full scribe log building courses, dovetail log building courses and timber framing courses. Our students will also enjoy the 100 plus year-old restored log buildings and timber frames at our yard that have been imported from Eastern Canada. A vast range of student profiles have succeeded in our log building school: previous experience is helpful but not necessary. We recognize that power tools and big wood can be intimidating. Our courses offer instruction in a safe and controlled environment through graduated steps and by an experienced professional.
