Bannon Handcrafted Log Homes & Timberframes
At Bannon Timber and Log Structures, we have a long tradition of quality workmanship. Our time has a combined experience of more than 85 years of work on timber and log structures. We’ve had our hands on more than 100 different projects in southwestern Ontario, the Great Lakes region, the Muskokas, and as far north as Spanish ON. We’ve worked with dozens of different builders locally and at the project destinations.
Dan Bannon is a member of the International Log Builders Association who started training at the Allan Mackie School of Log Building in Prince George, BC in 1983, along with a class of students from all over the world. Later he apprenticed near his home in Alberta for WPM Handcrafted Log Homes, where most of their product was shipped to Japan.
In 1988 Dan relocated to Burford, Ontario, and then again in 1996 to rural Stratford (where he & his wife Brenda grew up) to raise their family & continue business on an acreage where we are located today with shop & building yard.
Our structures have ranged in size from 1,200 to 9,000 sq feet.
Bannon uses Scandinavian Scribe fit on their round log structures. The log work takes place in our building yard, and logs are tagged and numbered so they can be easily reassembled after being shipped to the building location.
Timber framing is our most popular style of building, that we construct using real timber. The White Pine or Douglas Fir timbers are laid out, hand cut and chiseled to create a solid structure-sound frame.
Along with building homes, we can build commercial spaces as well. Our own shop is a structure we built ourselves, and we can build large projects like manufacturing shops, lodges and ski chalets.
