Heavy Timber Trusses in a Church will make a strong statement. Don't you think so? Douglas Fir Timber with Arched Braces, I just love it. At Vermont Timber Works we are contracted for many church projects. Can you see why? I certainly can!

Do you want a timber frame home or barn or building? If so the first major decision to make is who to choose as your timber framer. Someone to trust with your post and beam dream. Budget is important also as a custom hand crafted frame with be more of an investment than a machine milled package deal. Does your floor plan include a great room with a cathedral ceiling? Lots and lots of windows for your fabulous view? Maybe something like this...
At Vermont Timber Works we have over 20 years experience designing, fabricating and raising timber frames. If you are not sure what you want but have some ideas, I'm sure that we can help. If you know exactly what you want, we'll make sure it becomes just what you envision.

This timber frame dining room creates a warm and comfortable place not only for meals, but for gathering in general. Open to the kitchen it's perfect for family and friends, and great for entertaining, right Dan? Rough sawn hemlock timbers and mortise and tenon joinery, love it Vermont Timber Works.

My 2 horses are wonderful and their barn is shown above, and it's okay for now. My dream for them is a timber frame working horse barn. Perhaps something like this...
The Duker Big Barn is a wonderful example of how beautiful and functional a timber frame barn can be. My horse barn will not be as large, but I love this layout.

Dan and Rick work on layout for the Spruce Peak Project in Stowe, VT. Some of these beams are 50FT long.
Once the layout is finished, the fabrication begins. Below is Mike, he's been working with Vermont Timber Works for quite some time now.
Planed and Chamfered Douglas Fir timber beams are sanded, then are ready for a sealer.
Helmsman Spar Urethane in a satin sheen is chosen. 2 coats are applied in our shop, great job Justin!
Below is Ruby...would you please give her a treat?

These trusses are ready! 3 Trusses in front are shipping to the Clay Pit Ponds Park NEW Visitor Center, Staten Island, New York. Trusses in beautiful Douglas Fir timber were fabricated and fully assembled in our shop. Steel joinery as you can see.
The timber used needed to be FSC Certified and Fire Treated, thank you Disdero Lumber for offering both.
The Scissor Trusses behind will soon be going to the Grace Episcapal Church in Amherst, MA. (expect more pictures of that project!)
