Meet Oliver Tritten
Oliver Tritten was born to work with wood. He has been immersed in the timber industry for over three decades, perfecting his craft with endless hours of timber planning, drawing, engineering and building experience from all over the globe.
Oliver grew up in Ontario and at the age of thirteen, he and his family moved to Switzerland. He spent his young adult life overseas studying timber framing, resulting in a Master’s Degree. As a timber framer specializing in advanced engineered roof systems, Oliver landed a job with Pioneer Log Homes in the summer of 2000, making Williams Lake his home away from home for good.
After establishing his career and showcasing his knowledge, Oliver branched out on his own venture. “There was plenty of room in the market; starting a new business was an obvious decision. It’s a wonderful town to live in, and obviously, I love the wood supply around Williams Lake,” laughs Oliver.
The new entrepreneurship has been a booming success. When quiet moments allow for it, Oliver enjoys spending time with his two children out in the wilderness; either camping, fishing, panning for gold, or snowboarding. He recommends visiting Cariboo and Ghost Lake, both favourite spots of his highlighting the wonderful history of the Gold Rush era.
