We are nearly complete with our timber work for a large addition to a 19-th century farmhouse in Poultney, VT. The interior structure of the building is rendered in timber, and the exterior high-performance envelope is built conventionally. The new space will house a large book collection and guest quarters, and also features an octagonal turret with an octagonal hipped timber roof (check that frame out on its own page, here). Goosewing worked closely with our friends at A. Ginsburg Architects to design the frame, and with Black Diamond Builders to detail the timber frame/stick frame interface. We’ll be back in Poultney to install a timber frame pergola outside the addition, so stay tuned for pictures of that and of the finished project.
