The Fresh Air Fund is a non-profit organization that provides free summer vacations for New York Inner City children at their 3,000 acre camp in Fishkill, New York. Vermont Timber Works constructed a dining hall frame for the camp.
We worked with The Geddis Partnership architects,DeStefano Associates engineers & Andron Construction on this project.
All of our frames are handcrafted to meet exact project requirements, and we enjoy working with our clients to make sure the details – from design to finish – are just right.

SEE THE PROCESS
First, the timber frame goes through the design process, which involves a series of sketches and review with the client and their architect — including a 3D model of the frame — until there is an approved final design. With the final design, detailed 2D shop drawings are created and used to fabricate the frame.
After the timber frame has been fabricated in the Vermont shop, our crew often travels to the job site to assemble and raise the frame. The same people who cut the frame do the assembly.
