    My name is David Lyman and I am the Owner- Operator and Hands on Builder at Timber Wright. I began taking interest in construction at a very young age. As I learned later that the first house I ever lived in was a house that my father had built by salvaging logs from an abandoned machinery shed off of a farm in Glengarry Ontario, which he built a small hand hewn log house from. Over the course of his life time my father had built several houses for which our family was to live in.

 

    I remember working with him on weekends, evenings and summer holidays, salvaging lumber and turn of the century logs re-sawing and re-building new structures. Although this was not my Father`s main stay, but certainly it was something he enjoyed doing. Therefore I learned to pull nails and stack lumber at very young age and helped him build 2 houses, cottage, garage and several  other buildings.

              

    I traveled out West in 1978 and worked for different Construction companies as a Carpenter, when I heard of a course that was being given in Log Home construction in Prince George B.C at the College of New Caledonia, I took the course and found my Life`s  Passion.

 

    In 1984 I returned home to Gatineau Quebec and started to work for a local Pulp & Paper mill in Masson Quebec as a Seasonal worker 4 months per year. I had plenty of free time, which I used to Educate myself in Architectural Drafting, Structural  Engineering of Timber Homes, Shop Drawings, General Log construction in all of the different techniques, Repairs of Period Log Home Structures. I bought, read and Studied every book that was available on the Market written by Masters of the different Techniques over a period of nine seasons that I worked for Maclaren`s Pulp and Paper Mill, and the rest of the eight months in the year I worked on Log and Timber Projects. The rest is History, told by the photographs of projects over the last thirty five years.
