Blackwood Barn

Country Barn

Hammer Beam Truss

Blackwood Barn is in Rockingham, VT. It is an eastern hemlock timber frame that is traditionally joined with mortise and tenon cuts that are secured with 1” birch pegs.

We worked with Richard Monahon Jr., AIA 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 barn, or have any timber work questions, we invite you to get in contact or ask an expert!

EXPLORE THE BARN | THE INTERIOR

The interior of the frame shows off decisions that were made early in the timber frame process, like how to finish the timber. The beams in the Backwood barn are rough hewn hemlock.

SEE THE PROCESS | ASSEMBLY & RAISING

After a timber frame has been fabricated, our crew often travels to the job site to assemble and raise the frame. The same people who cut the frame do the assembly.

SEE THE PROCESS | 3D DESIGN

During the design process, we go through 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.
