Post & Beam Nature Reserve

Sam's Point Visitor Center

Entry to Sam's Point Visitor Center with Post and Beam Construction

Sam’s Point State Park is a beautiful natural reserve in upstate New York. Vermont Timber Works provided custom timber beams for the park.

We worked with Matthew Bialecki Associates Architects and Artisan Engineering 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 like this park frame, or 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.
