Dutch's Spirits Distillery Barn Raising Video
Last Fall, we shipped a timber frame package to Pine Plains, New York for the new Dutch's Spirits Distillery Barn. The distillery barn is being built on historic property where the infamous mobster Dutch Schultz led a bootlegging operation during the prohibition era. The story is quite something, be sure to check out the history behind Dutch's Spirits! Included in Dutch's Spirits recent newsletter was an awesome time laps video showing the barn under construction, check out the video below!
Stratton Vermont Timber Frame Ski House
Last year we worked with Southern Vermont builder Northland Builders on this beautiful new hybrid timber frame ski home located in the heart of Stratton, Vermont. The home is a hybrid home featuring conventional "stick frame" construction and timber frame construction. The homeowners chose to use timber framing in the central core of the home. These trusses are not our typical style truss, the homeowner requested that they feature an arch and the trusses feature steel accents to give the timber frame a more modernized look. We typically apply a clear tongue oil to our frames, but the client chose to add a nice gray stain which looks stunning with the black painted steel accents.
