Timber Block brings its eco-friendly homes to Ontario

Timber Block

This weekend Quebec-based developer Timber Block is opening its first-ever flagship model homes in Ontario, and you’re invited for a sneak peek. If you’ll be in the Innisfil, Ont., area between September 26 and 28, stop by for a VIP open house. The open house will give savvy homeowners (and aspiring soon-to-be homeowners!) a chance to explore the best of Timber Block’s innovative, eco-friendly designs. Fittingly, the flagship is located in Innisfil, just off of Highway 400 near Barrie, the gateway to Ontario’s cottage country.

While Timber Block’s homes stand out for their beautiful and modern designs, it’s the technology behind the walls that really matters. Timber Block uses a patented building style that features pre-fabricated panelized walls, all of which are constructed and finished inside a controlled factory environment. This technique means that each house—whether it’s a cozy log cabin deep in the Kawarthas or a family home in downtown Toronto—can be built in half the time of typical framing methods. Developed over seven years, Timber Block’s engineering system uses more insulation than the typical home to create an airtight thermal envelope, resulting in more energy-efficient homes.

And while the science behind Timber Block’s pre-fabricated walls is hi-tech, the company’s motive remains rooted in tradition. “We provide home owners with the home of their dreams that is a reflection of their personality, vision, and family,” says Timber Block’s president, Craig Johnson.

In Innisfil you can tour two distinct model homes that will appeal to cottagers and city slickers alike. The Labrador is a 2,500 sq. ft. luxury log home that resembles a thoroughly modern cabin while still using genuine stacked construction. Each log is stacked individually, bonded and then bolted together in Timber Block’s factories. The Milano, on the other hand, is a piece of contemporary architecture. Using mixed materials on the exterior, the 3,000 sq. ft. Milano is cubic in design, featuring all the amenities for the family: two fireplaces, a second-floor balcony, an abundance of windows, and spacious bedrooms.

The Labrador and Milano are just two examples of the more than 40 styles in Timber Block’s collection. They can also do custom-builds, allowing you to work with the company’s experts to design your home exactly how you like it.

Timber Block has been building homes in Quebec for a decade now, but these two model homes marks their entry into Ontario.

“People who are on a quest to build their dream home are typically deep in research and education on what to build,” Johnson says. “Timber Block provides a superior product when compared to other building methods.”
