Sometimes a hybrid timber frame is exactly what a client needs to keep a project in budget.
The new Badger factory is a wonderful example of this very situation.
Vermont Timber Works provided a douglas fir timber frame that is an addition to the builders conventional framing. The frame creates the look & feel the Badgers want in their new space, but is lower cost, because the conventional frame is also structural.
The combination of traditional and steel joinery reminded me of an old mill building.
What else is nice are those rocking t-shirts.
I think its time to give one away!
Share this post and also leave a comment so that I know you stopped by. After one weeks time, someone gets a t-shirt. It will be a random selection from the comments left.
Thanks for stopping by our timber framers blog and good luck!
