School King Trusses

Westbrook Middle School

Interior of Westbrook Middle School with King post trusses in ME

Westbrook Middle School is in Westbrook, ME. Vermont Timber Works provided custom timber trusses for the school.

The trusses have a king post design and were fabricated from douglas fir timber, which was finished with a urethane stain. The trusses’ traditional mortise and tenon joints are secured with 1” birch pegs.

We worked with architects Harriman Associates and builders Harvey Construction Corp. on this project.

All of our timber work is 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 these timber trusses, or have timber work questions, we invite you to get in contact or ask an expert!
