The Timber Kings show on the Home and Garden Network continues to thrill audiences and build fans worldwide.
Many of those fans made a special trip to the sports shop at Canadian Tire Sunday where Pioneer Log Homes of BC owner André Chevigny and builder Joel Roorda autographed pictures and talked with fans.
Canadian Tire owner Jim Anderson said the special event was held to promote the Timber Kings show Sunday night that was all about Pioneer Log Homes building the impressive log structure for the Williams Lake store.
Anderson said there was a steady stream of visitors during the three-and-a-half hour event.
Visitors were treated to free hot dogs and drinks as well as free fishing lures and Canadian Tire hunting hats.
Among the fans chatting with the stars were Rob Sandrock and Lindsey Newell.
Lindsey is originally from Ireland and was getting pictures of the stars signed to send to her father in Ireland who is also a carpenter and is interested in the work of the company.
She is also having Pioneer make a custom picture frame for her best friend’s wedding which she will attend in Ireland this spring.
The custom frame will have the names of her friends carved on it along with the date they are getting married.
Joel said he has worked on projects in Scotland several times and will work on his first project in Ireland this year.
Several other local venues and people have been featured in the hit show including the Cariboo Memorial Hospital, the Cariboo Bethel Church and Brock Hoyer and the Williams Lake Dirt Rider’s Association’s motocross track.
