There have been so many wonderful VTW projects, and so many “great” great rooms over the years. I’ve been looking through photos and remembering some of the finest, which brought me back to Stowe, Vermont and the Spruce Camp Base Lodge.
This building is impressive from the moment you drive up, park your vehicle, and grab your gear. Once you get inside, the real fun begins.
From the inside, you can the steel joined, massive, octagon timber frame. They call the main seating area The Great Room. Do you agree with that? I certainly do!
The Octagon is an 80 foot span! How cool is that?
The lodge looks so cozy lit up at night under a blanket of snow!
