Special homes in exceptional places

Remote Access Island Homes

We love our magnificent woodland wilderness here in northern Ontario, and so do our clients. That’s why they want to build new homes here – and that poses challenges in terms of remote access building plots. In a just a few miles, access changes from major highways to basic trails snaking through the woods.

Off Grid Homes

Building a new home off the beaten track in remote locations offers you exceptional peace and quiet. However, it may also mean your new home won’t be connected to utilities including water, sewage, electric or telecommunications. Connections can be very expensive, and in some locations, not available at all.

Timber Frame Homes

Timber frame home building enables you to design a home for you and your family that’s practical, beautiful and hand-crafted, all in one. All our custom timber frames are made in specialist facilities to our exacting specifications. Once delivered on site, they can be quickly assembled on pre-prepared bases for rapid assembly, often within a few days.

Waterfront Homes

Waterfront cottages are so popular in our part of north Lake Huron, they are almost part of our community DNA! With acres of waterfront and lakeside within just a few miles of Sault Ste. Marie, there is ample opportunity to build your own waterfront cottage, or renovate an existing property for modern living.

What Our Clients Are Saying

“Our project started as a dream of building an off grid self sufficient lake side home free of traditional utilities and powered by nature itself.

We purchase a run down 3 acre lakeside property with nothing more than a vision of what it could be.

Josh from Timmerman construction was introduced to us by way of a referral from a family member who had recently moved to the area. After or first meeting we were sold! We awarded the contract to Timmerman Scott right there and then. The next month was spent planning the vision and sourcing suppliers for some of the more exotic finishes we were looking for.

Timmerman organized all of the permits and material procurement once selected and began work right away even though we were in the dead of Winter. We also met with the rest of the team, both Chris, Reg and Brandon have been exceptionally also through the project with a keen eye for detail.

We have been nothing but impressed with Timmerman Scott Builders and the completed project is just stunning. We would highly recommend their services to anyone looking for a quality contractor to also bring their construction project dream to reality.”

Tony & Victoria

In 2020 Chris transformed our old wood deck into a beautiful, modern Trex composite deck.

We had met with several contractors to review the job.  Chris was the only one who was open and honest with us about what the job entailed.

We truly appreciated his honesty and it was obvious that he had extensive knowledge of installing trex decking.

It was a no brainer to choose Chris to complete the work for us. I fear that if we had gone with another contractor, we would have had problems after a very short amount of time.

Chris was great to work with.  He really put us first and our time was just as valuable as his time.  He was always here when he said he would be and if he was running behind, he called.

Our deck is absolutely beautiful. The work is meticulous and we have had no problems with it.  We are always complimented on how great it looks.

I highly recommend Timmerman Scott Builders and I will be using them again in the future.

Catherine & Luke

Our family cannot say enough about Timmerman Scott Builders and the support they provided to us during a very recent crisis situation. Thanks to their professionalism, excellent service delivery and true compassion, we were able to bring our Dad home from the hospital and through the doors of the home he built with his own two hands. We were in dire need of having a concrete pad installed within an admittedly unrealistic timeframe so that an electric lift could be put in prior to hospital discharge.

Timmerman Scott Builders came highly recommended so we reached out. Not only did they respond quickly, but they delivered on their promise which thankfully allowed us to welcome Dad home on time and safely. They went above and beyond what was asked in every sense of the word.

If you are thinking about building or renovating and are looking for excellent workmanship and someone you can trust, don’t hesitate to reach out to them. You won’t be sorry!

We’d like to thank you guys for your work and below is our testimonial for your use. I included photos including a before-shot, but you’d need to put them in order.

When looking to build an addition to our home on Beech Beach, we were referred to Timmerman Scott by a somebody when we were seeking a designer. A local build supply store had an awesome designer they worked with (Iris McLean).

The initial meeting at site went well as they looked at the existing home structure (Gable roof) and how to tie in to something more contemporary that would showcase the look for a new master bedroom and den/guestroom. The design exchanges included all parties, and Josh Scott as the initial interface answered all questions and quelled any concerns we had. The footings and foundation went in on time in November to be ready for a Spring build.

There were some material supply delays, not unfamiliar as the world rebounded from Covid, but outside of those bumps they framed the two story addition in 5 days, and were equally expedient with the remainder after a material supply gap.

As context, we were living in the existing home while they were building on to it, and yet their disruption was almost nothing and their care of the area was great.

Chris, Isaac and Spencer were the primary crew and all were careful, respectful, and accomodating to tailor the various nuances you can’t catch on paper designs that needed to be worked around (especially when tying into an existing structure). They also made many of the “owner on-the-fly details” work. The courtesy and customer interactions were as good as the customer service you come to expect at the largest retail chains – very polite, no arguments, and with a can do attitude. They were transparent and honest on any issues and engaged me when needed. I was impressed at the end when Chris corrected me on an overpayment I’d have never caught – that integrity is important and confirms we made a great choice in selecting this builder. Isaac and Spencer were absolutely great, and did a lot of detail work to make this complex roof crossing, and trim details work out and were super great to work with. I found the whole team worked continually, starting early and putting in solid days.

As a first time build experience, I was always a bit nervous about the elements (rain, snow, winds) that could affect us off the lake… they answered my questions, and engineered solutions to deal with and assure we’d be safe from the winds and side-blowing rain and snow we can get sometimes.

It was a great first experience for us and considering additions are more difficult than a new build, we would recommend you for sure!

Wishing you guys the best of success!

This summer we had the pleasure of working with Chris and Josh of Timmerman Scott. After a very difficult time trying to secure anyone to help us with our project, they literally came to the rescue!

Our little beloved family cabin once stood on wavering piers and we feared impending collapse. It was carefully lifted, rolled to the side, and now it sits on top of an exquisite 8 foot ceiling, walkout garage!

From the first conversation with Josh, we knew we were in good hands. They are experts at customer satisfaction, and we felt this from start to finish.

The open communication was amazing, with all questions answered, and things clearly explained from start to finish with very definite timelines. Chris and his wonderful crew clearly showed a high level of experience and pride of workmanship. The crew was extremely courteous, easy to be around, trustworthy, filled with joyful banter and hard work until the sun went down. When we were not on site, we were given daily updates and photos.

Now when we reach the northern gate and look up the hill, we no longer have to search for the roofline to see if it is still standing… Because it will be for a very long time, thanks to Timmerman Scott.

When we are ready to build our northern home, there will be no question who will do it. We give Timmerman Scott two enthusiastic thumbs up! Sincerely, Chris Ruber and Carrie Rongits Ruber Iron Bridge, Ontario
