Creative and Beautiful Heavy Timber Framing

Just a few finished pictures of our Camp Haden Dining Hall. Incredible project from start to finish. Thank you to the team players! The Geddis Partnership, Storm King Contracting, The Fresh Air Fund and Vermont Timber Works, Inc.

Interior, the contrast between the heavy timber construction and the light colors are stunning.

Even the red is something else. Let's work on another one John B. !!

Heavy Timber Design Creates Big Open Spaces

Camp Hayden Dining Hall, Fresh Air Fund, Fishkill, NY.

Now that is a dining hall! Heavy timber construction creates large open spans, supported by timber columns and steel joinery. I can only imagine how beautiful this room is at night, see the up lighting? More pictures may be needed of this project.

Designing with Heavy Timber

This design was originally sent to us in steel. We were asked to take a look in heavy timber. With an over 66ft top chord in glulam and the rest in natural douglas fir timber, here is our heavy timber design.

Personally, I love it. This timber frame project will be interesting and challenging! I'll keep you posted as design decisions are made...
