For thirty-three years, the small team of experts at Cascade Joinery has been crafting timberwork for commercial, municipal, and high-end residential buildings in a vast range of architectural styles.

Today we are the Northwest’s leading producer of crafted timberwork, and a prominent presence in the rapidly growing Mass Timber movement. In addition to timberwork fabrication and installation, we provide specialized design consultation and creative structural engineering solutions.

The reputation we’ve earned with our clients as a collegial and communicative company, eager to collaborate, has been built on a workplace culture that fosters those same qualities in our team. From our front office to the shop floor, we take pride in supporting, learning from, and bringing the very best out of one another. We believe that achieving at a high level together means recognizing that we have lives outside the workplace, too.

Working where we do helps.

Nestled in its namesake bay, the gemlike city of Bellingham (pop. 93,000) abounds with natural wonder in every direction, from the sandy beaches of the San Juan Islands to the glaciers of Mt. Baker. Whether it’s hiking, whale watching, or some of the best skiing in the nation, locals have ready access to most every outdoor activity imaginable. Sprawling Whatcom Falls Park, with its waterfalls and five miles of trails, is one in a bevy of nearby green spaces and nature preserves.

About fifty miles south of Vancouver, Bellingham bustles with culture, boasting vibrant art and music scenes and a thriving downtown, filled with theaters, galleries, and quality restaurants. According to Forbes, the cost of living in Bellingham is 25% less than in Seattle. Add to the mix its excellent schools, and it’s no wonder we feel lucky to be here.

Cascade Joinery offers outstanding benefits including competitive compensation, health insurance, paid time off, paid holidays and a simple IRA. We also encourage team members to take advantage of shop machinery for their own projects after hours.
