Saw this last weekend. We were renovating an old house. Don’t know if that has anything to do with anything!
I have looked at some photos here and while this resembles some of them, I cannot find a match for the design on the carapace.

Dear Sharon,
Your Flatfaced Longhorn is
Synaphaeta guexi.  Your individual is right on time.  According to the Data on BugGuide, this species appears in British Columbia in May and June.
