Steve Friesen

Raising Specialist

Joined Daizen in 2013

Steve was a firefighter for 10 years before officially moving his career to the timber frame industry. He completed a timber-frame course at the College of the Rockies in Cranbrook prior to securing a position at Daizen in 2013.

Day to day, Steve works with the crew doing installation and raising of projects. Steve’s colleagues describe him as a happy guy who is great to work with and easy to be around. Not surprisingly, his motto in life is to always try to be happy. Steve has planned to spend a year in Japan, learning about the culture, architecture and building styles before returning to Canada and Daizen.

Why Daizen?

“I love learning the Japanese side of the craft. That is very special to me.”
