The Vermont Veterans Chapel is in Randolph, VT. Vermont Timber Works constructed a timber frame with an open air design and space for sliding glass doors for the chapel.
The frame features long central girder trusses that are reinforced with steel rods. The girder trusses are acting as principal purlins.
We worked with architect Marcel Beaudin, AIA, engineers Dufresne-Henry, Professional Construction Inc., and the State of Vermont on this lovely chapel.
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 DRAWINGS & PLANS
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.
