Methow Valley Builders Inc. takes advanced wood construction techniques driving the largest wood buildings in the world to create superior residential solutions. LucasCube building systems and our custom architectural Mass Timber projects utilize selectively logged small diameter softwoods from ecological thinning and fire management projects on both public and private lands. Once un marketable, much of the small diameter and random lengths generated from ecological thinning is now manufactured into Cross Laminated Timber (CLT), Glue Laminated Timber (GLT), and Glue Laminated Beams and Columns (GLB). Our structures combine these components creating a superior residential structure.
Mass Timber Construction positively affects timber communities, worker and occupant health, and the environment. Selective logging unlike clearcutting, diversifies species, trophic levels, boosting net biological productivity helping to restore mono-crop timber to a more balanced natural fire ecology. The embodied carbon in the mass timber represents a 50%+ decrease in CO2 production associated with typical construction.
