The Wakenah Pool House is in Salem, CT. Vermont Timber Works provided a custom timber frame for the residential client.
The project is shown under construction. The owner bought an old Boy Scout camp and completely rebuilt it. In the summers, he loans it back to the boy scouts.
All of our frames are handcrafted to meet exact project requirements, and we enjoy working with our clients to make sure the details – from design to finish – are just right.

SEE THE PROCESS - DRAWING & PLANNING
The timber frame design process involves a series of sketches and review with the client and their architect — including a 3D model of the frame — until there is an approved final design. With the final design, detailed 2D shop drawings are created and used to fabricate the frame.
