Past Projects

Norse builds homes, commercial, cabins and recreational. We can take on large scope projects or offer you pre-cut wood accents for your DIY project. We have a mill on site for squared timbers but our crew is excellent with natural round timbers of all sizes. We have done many commercial projects like the Nanaimo Cabellas outdoor store, Country Club Mall holiday displays, the Nanaimo Fish and Games archery building, The Port Alberni Sugar Shack, The Bungy Zone, the Mount Washington Tube Shack, the Nanaimo tourist building, many golf course gazebos and school post and beam projects. We have also had a lot of involvement in many First Nation projects in BC including remote Big Houses, waterfront gazebos, gathering locations, picnic tables and large timber welcome signs.

In addition to commercial projects, we have built hundreds of homes and recreational cottages all over the world. Each as unique as it’s owner in a variety of styles and finishing.
