Hip Roof Pavilion


Plans FOr the Fontainebleau Timber Frame

Fontainebleau is a state park Mandville, LA. Vermont Timber Works constructed a visitor center pavilion for the park.

The frame has a king post truss design and a hip roof. It was constructed using antique heart pine beams. It was under construction during Hurricane Katrina and only experienced minor water damage.

We worked with general contractors GM & R Construction and Trapolin Architects 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.

If you have timber work questions, we invite you to get in contact or ask an expert!

The timber frame design process 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.
