Vermont Timber Works hand crafted scissor and hammer beam trusses for Grace Episcopal church, which is located in Springfield, MO.
Morelock-Ross Builders and Marshall Walters Woody Architects both worked on this project as well.
All of our timber 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.

EXPLORE THE CHURCH
The timber used for the trusses is Douglas Fir with a dark stain. The hammer beam trusses are reinforced with steel tie rods that resolve spreading forces.

ASSEMBLY & RAISING
After a timber frame has been fabricated, our crew often travels to the job site to assemble and raise the frame. The same people who cut the frame do the assembly.

DRAWING & PLANNING
The 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.
