Leaves are changing, the sun is starting to close up shop earlier in the day and the sky is an unmistakeable shade of autumn blue.
The smell of pumpkin spice fills every bakery and coffee shop, and the crisp air from the open windows carries a promise that winter is well on its way.
Generally, when we head into this season, we start to wonder if things will slow down. Contractors and builders will put big jobs on hold for fear that the ground will freeze quickly, and the parks and lake houses will be void of activity and any plans for remodeling will wait for the birth of spring.
But don’t let the cold weather stop you from planning your timber frame project.
Here at Vermont Timber Works, we build timber frames throughout the year, even through the coldest, most brutal part of the winter.
Mother Nature, as strict as she may be, can’t tame the brave hearts of our seasoned artisans. They work fearlessly and and precisely; the frozen tundra no match for these warriors of heavy timber construction.
The time frame for obtaining a timber frame through us is typically a 3 month period.
This includes the time for producing shop drawings, ordering and fabricating the materials, and shipping to wherever the location may be.
This is a great time of year to start planning for an early spring build, or even a mid-winter renovation, or project that you would like to have completed when the warmer weather starts to reappear.
Don’t put off until tomorrow what you would like to get done today.
Call me at Vermont Timber Works to find out what we can do for you this winter, and start enjoying your new pavilion, pool house, vacation home, or barn, while others are just starting to plan for theirs.
