The Wakenah Home is on a lake in Salem, CT. Vermont Timber Works provided a custom timber frame for the client’s great room, porches and indoor pool. The project features great open spaces and intimate retreats.
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.
