The timber frame structures for Jay Peak Resort are coming along!

We are very happy to be doing commercial timber frame work in the North Country. Thank you DEW Construction for choosing us once again.

Timber Bracing for Ticket Counter Roof

Timber Bracing

The ticket counter features douglas fir timber rafters with bracing for roof support.

Below, is the start of the Porte Cochere. In the picture, two of our framers are setting the first truss, which is always exciting.  Always!

Check out the size of the glulam support beams! 8″ x 30″ x 40′ They are  Engineered for heavy snow loads (among other things) by our very own Jessie, P.E.

Timber Frame Shed for the Snowmobiles? Of course.

I think everyone should have a timber shed for their snowmobiles.  Do you agree?
