Fort Necessity State Park

King Post Trusses

Fort Necessity is a national battlefield site in Farmington, PA. Vermont Timber Works built a custom king post truss pavilion timber frame for the park.

The frame was constructed with douglas fir timber using traditional joinery. We worked with John Titus from MCDS Incorporated on this project.

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.

If you have timber work questions, we invite you to get in contact or ask an expert!

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.
