The People of Timber Haus

Meet Our Team.
Don

Don Tolsma

President

Don started working in the residential construction industry in the late 1990s as a carpenter. Building decks and fences for a production builder. In 2003, he was approached by a production builder to become their lead carpenter, which led to his becoming a superintendent and then construction manager.

In 2017, Don co-founded Timber Haus Developments with his business partner John Wilson. With a combined 40 years of experience in the industry, Timber Haus has become one of the most respected Infill and Custom Home builders in Edmonton.

Don’s passion is people. Creating and turning Timber Haus’s customers’ dream homes into reality. Customer service is number one. The relationships and friendships that are built when building someone’s home last a lifetime.

As an industry leader, Don sat on the Canadian Home Builders Edmonton Region Board of Directors from 2019 until 2021 and continues to lead the Infill industry by sitting on the Builder Technical Committee and as a chair of the Mature Neighborhood working group for the CHBA-ER. He also sits on multiple other committees to continue strong advocacy for the Construction industry in Edmonton.

Whether it is building a big custom home, a garden suite, or a basement suite, “Building amazing homes or spaces for amazing people is my passion.”
