Our story starts with a young man named Mark who dreamed of building a simple rustic cabin in the woods. He found the perfect remote spot, started building and just kept going! He would put together picnic tables on weekends to help fund the project. Then, as more and more people noticed his talent, attention to detail and craftsmanship, custom requests started to pour in. Mark began offering new products and incorporated a company. He named it Forest Trek, to capture his love for nature and the long journey it had taken him to get here.

We offer prairie farm furniture, cabins, sheds, and outdoor woodwork. Our products are designed to fit any lifestyle while remaining affordable.

We are based out of Edmonton, Alberta and provide products anywhere in Alberta, Yukon, Saskatchewan, and British Columbia.

The Creative Hive


The Creative Hive is simply our passion.  Sounds corny, but hey it’s the truth.  We wanted to make a single place where all creative’s are welcome to explore their craft, hone their skills and collaborate naturally with other people navigating changing industries.  
First though…how?  We have both been in the media world for more than a decade.  A world that is changing faster than mainstream News can keep up too, but in the midst of it all we carved out a complete love for our community and the many people that jump each day to make their dreams a reality.  We wanted to be a part of that!  We wanted to create a place that welcomes all the dreamers, all the doers, all the people putting Edmonton on the map.  
With small budgets and big plans we cleaned up and curated a special place unexpectedly found amongst all things industrial in West Edmonton.  It’s a space with a natural light studio, green screen room, workspace, meeting space and event space.
It’s a place that’s as eclectic as the businesses we hope to fill our space.  We want you to focus on what you do best and not worry about the overhead of a bricks and mortar building.  You are free to create, plan, succeed…we just supply you loads of free coffee, kick-ass wifi and a space that naturally lends to collaboration.  
Our first jobs were in the News…using video to tell stories, events, and moments.  We are now working to make The Creative Hive a place where stories are shared, moments made and community is created. 
The response to our dream has been overwhelming and we truly hope to start something uniquely Edmonton.
