Notre Dame Academy

Timber Frame High School

Notre Dame Academy is in Staten Island, NY. Vermont Timber Works constructed a post and beam frame for the school’s Arts & Humanities building.

We worked with Pavilion Building Corporation and The Geddis Partnership 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 like this timber frame, or have timber work questions, we invite you to get in contact or ask an expert!

The timber is douglas fir that is rough sawn and finished with a urethane stain.The frame is traditionally joined the old-fashioned way, with mortise and tenon cuts that are secured with 1” birch pegs.
