The Chapel for the Holy Apostles is located in Cromwell, CT. The frame spans 60FT! We are proud to have been chosen to design, engineer, hand cut and also raise this timber frame.
We used douglas fir timbers free of heart center to build this frame. There are also douglas fir glulam arches. The steel tension ring in the center of the frame is super cool — it’s providing massive structural support.
Do you see the little tree top on the cupola? That tree means we are finished raising the main frame, and is also put up there for good luck. The contractor installed the extension sections.
Below is a stunning picture of the Chapel at night. The design for this frame was interesting and complex. It shows what a great team can accomplish!
As always, thank you for stopping by!
