Daizen was established in 1990 as a hand-crafted log home manufacturing company in Parksville, BC, catering to the timber frame manufacturing and export market to Japan.
Led by company founder and owner Dai Ona, Daizen Joinery expanded its production capabilities with the addition of CNC technology in 2001, and turned its focus to the North American timber frame market, where opportunities for the craft were growing.
Since then, Daizen has evolved to become one of the most successful and innovative timber frame operations in the BC Interior with clients extending throughout Western Canada, the Pacific Northwest, California and Hawaii.
Now located in beautiful Kamloops, BC, in an expansive 20,000-square-foot shop on the shores of the South Thompson River, Daizen works with a team of more than a dozen timber frame, joinery and woodworking experts, as well as partner organizations with extensive experience in the design and manufacture of timber frame buildings and homes.
What has not changed in more than 20 years is the company’s focus on quality, innovation, client expectations and competitiveness.
Daizen is production-focused with the continuous goal of product improvement, earning the company many awards in Japan for hand-crafted homes, and more recently a first-place award during a log building competition from the International Log Building Association in 2005.
