NORMERICA – The Timber Frame Experts
In 1979, after gaining several years’ experience working for a large development company, David McFarlane stumbled across an article about post and beam construction and was instantly hooked. Mr. McFarlane had always wanted to start his own construction business, and he realized that the warmth and richness of a timber frame home would be sure to captivate consumers. He launched Upper Canada Post and Beam almost immediately.
The company’s distinctive timber frame plans and structures were an instant hit, and sales quickly expanded to cover Canada, and internationally. As business spread beyond Canada’s borders, the team renamed the company in 1997 to Normerica Authentic Timber Frame to reflect its broader geographical footprint.
