House on the Lake

House On The Lake is in Minocqua, WI. Vermont Timber Works provided a timber frame with curved, glue-laminated beams for this residential client.

We worked with Schultz Building and the architectural firm Ghidorzi on this project. The glulam timber for the home was supplied by Alamco, Sara Haumschild of Inspired by Design was the interior designer, and David Bader photographed the home.

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.

With over 26 years of experience designing, engineering and building custom timber frames, we can assure our clients that our frames are the best in the industry.

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

The frame features a mix of traditional douglas fir beams and modern douglas fir glue laminated timber. The glulam timbers were used for the graceful arches that frame the window.

After a timber frame has been fabricated in our 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.
