Is lifetime skier, he gravitated to various ski resorts and began designing and building custom ski resort homes
during the time when resort development was experiencing rapid growth.
Recognizing that most of the ski resorts structures utilized heavy timbers and logs, both for structure and to reflect high mountain cabin styling, Brett began a log and timber division, settling on Montana, as the recognized center of the industry.
While the countrywide general demise of the luxury housing industry had a crippling effect on demand, his Bitterroot Timberframes remained active and has now returned to again be a reliable resource to developers, owners, architects, and general contractors who serve the renewed demand for these type of resort and ski area vacation homes.
Bitterroot Timberframes and Three Mile Creek Post and Beam design, build, and supplies its services and products with uniquely hand fabricated antique and reclaimed materials, including custom fabricating and finishing.

President & CEO
A graduate of UCLA's Anderson School of Business. 1954-1960
James was hired in Los Angeles in 1960, soon after completing his BS in Business Administration at UCLA, by Knoll International, world headquarters in NYC. He was hired as a trainee, promoted and transferred to its San Francisco office as Regional Marketing Manager.
He was then transferred to NYC in 1968. He became a senior VP, in charge of all new product development, all matters regarding design and facilities for expansion, and marketing. This included working for the company's subsidiaries and licensees throughout Europe, South America, and the Far East. The company was sold in 1976.
The new owners replaced the entire top management team, from President and CEO on down, so I then began my own consulting business. I remained self-employed, specializing in new business start-ups in architecture, interior design, high-end retail, and real estate development.
