Avalanche Custom Woodworks

Avalanche Custom Woodworks is your boutique Whistler construction company, specializing in finish carpentry. We take on Contracting, Renovations and Cosmetic upgrades.

Founder Matt Hyatt has spent his entire career in the high-end woodworking industry. He started his apprenticeship in Joinery at BCIT soon after high school and worked under experienced journeymen at a highly respected millwork shop in Richmond. Matt earned his Joinery Red Seal in 2010 and continued to hone his skills before making the switch over to the Carpentry trade. He would lend his expertise to an award winning Westside custom home construction and renovation company. He would continue his career in project supervision and construction management, earning his Carpentry Red Seal in 2019.

Avalanche Custom Woodworks was created in 2012 and was initially run after hours in Vancouver while Matt maintained his fulltime employment building custom homes. On top of quality craftsmanship, Matt is known for his great communication and transparency. His ability to think globally on every project ensures successful builds and flawless designs.

Through the many projects Avalanche Custom Woodworks took on, Matt was awarded the Home Stars Best of 2017 award for Carpentry in Vancouver and has been ranked #1 on YELP for many years. He has been an integral part in the construction of multiple iconic Whistler and Vancouver residences.

Matt grew up in the city, living life as a weekend warrior before making the move to Whistler in 2018. Mountain lifestyle and construction are his passions. Whistler life was not a matter of if, but when.
