Timber Block stems from a family tradition that began many years ago. Roger Mathon discovered his passion for home construction at the young age of 16, when he began helping out his father and grandfather. At 22, Roger decided to venture out and develop a business of his own, Germat. Over 35 years and thousands of homes later, Germat is now known for its high quality, superior wood frame housing.
As a young man Michel Mathon, Roger’s son, joined his father in the family business.
In 2000, he formed Confort Design a manufacturer of modular homes. And like Germat, Confort Design is successful and thriving today.
In 2002, Michel and a team of construction innovators truly revolutionized the home building industry and founded Timber Block. With patented R-30 wall insulation technology, a build time substantially less than its competitors, and incredible ease of build, Timber Block now produces more than 40% of the log homes in its core market. All while maintaining the high quality and appeal that is synonymous with the Timber Block brand.
