Timber Haus Developments is a custom builder inspired by Edmonton's heritage, history and iconic river valley. Backed by Lincolnberg Master Builder, Timber Haus offers the reliability of a reputable and award-winning builder, with the nuance, exclusivity and craftsmanship of an artisan carpenter. Our philosophy centres around lifestyle design. We strive to create homes that foster a sense of ease and effortlessness; homes that compliment your way of being.
While we primarily specialize in infill developments and custom homes, our enthusiasm for garden suites comes from our belief in community. We believe that neighbourhoods should be more multi-dimensional and inclusive, and less cookie-cutter. Garden suites are a way for homeowners to be creative with their space, while bettering their lives or the lives of those around them.
Garden suites offer all the simplicity of an apartment, without the noise of upstairs neighbours. The modern essence of a loft, paired with the charm of a neighbourhood. For homeowners, it's the entrepreneurial spirit of a basement suite, and extra disposable income, without actually sharing their home. Whether it’s keeping your family close, creating a workshop or hobby space, or adding a rental suite, Timber Haus is excited to be part of your journey!

Copperblock Capital Corp. has developed real estate for over 25 years. Eco-friendly, sustainable designs are at the forefront of what we build— from 160 square foot garden suites, to 95,000 square foot mixed-use developments. Features such as living roofs, rainwater collection, real-time energy calculation displays, geothermal healing/cooling, solar panels, and greywater plumbing are incorporated into our various projects, with some achieving LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification standards.
Copperblock specializes in building with repurposed steel shipping containers (also known as sea-cans). Forget the blocky aesthetic limitations you might traditionally associate with this material: step into one of our beautiful, open-concept modern homes, and you’d never guess that it was built using shipping containers.
Better yet, our sea-can builds are 30% more energy efficient than a traditional stick build, come net zero ready, divert tonnes of steel from the landfill, have high durability, and are cost effective. By prefabricating the parts in our manufacturing facility, we are able to cut the construction time of a traditionally built home by approximately half.
Contact us today to discuss your next project, garden suite or otherwise! We look forward to delivering to you a progressive, eco-friendly building on a compressed construction timeline.
