“Our experience with Will and Goosewing Timberworks was exceptional. From the earliest exploratory and design meetings to the completion of our home he was patient, helpful, friendly, and above all, professional. Will’s age belies his vast experience with wood and timber framing. Starting with an incompletely realized notion of what we were after we ended up with something far exceeding our expectations. There was no detail too fine for his attention and it shows in the final product. We would recommend Will without reservation to anyone considering a timber frame project. We also would welcome any visitors who would like to see our home as a showcase for the art of timber framing as executed by Will Gusakov.”

“Will Gusakov, of Goosewing Timberworks, is an exceptional craftsman. I love using timber frames for the structure of our homes and barns, and Will has built a number of them for us. Will’s costs are competitive, his attention to detail and ability to design and fabricate complex frames is second to none, and his work is outstanding. On top of that, he’s a lovely person, and a dream to work with. I could not recommend him more highly.”

“We've worked with Goosewing on several projects that have varied in size and style. Will is great to work with from the design stage all the way through installation. He is open to our team's input on details and execution but has the experience and confidence to make valuable recommendations to improve our product. The timber framing that Goosewing has done for us has added style and value to our projects, and we'll be sure to work with Will again moving forward.”

“Will Gusakov and the lads at Goosewing Timberworks were a pleasure to work with and built an amazing structure that will be on the land for generations. Will helped us design the project, and worked with our mason and contractor to co-ordinate the final product. The workmanship was so impressive that when the frame was put together at our place there wasn’t even a saw brought out. And then there was the fence!!! We are so happy to have found Goosewing and are always thinking of our next project to execute with them.”

“Will Gusakov’s post-and-beam frame for our house is a beautiful example of superb craftsmanship and attention to detail. The beams, created in Vermont, were erected on site in Rhode Island in a few days with a few workers, where they fitted together like a giant puzzle. We are privileged to live inside an amazing, imposing and at the same time subtle and old fashioned work of art. Thank-you Will!”

“I couldn’t be happier with Goosewing Timberworks' design and execution. Everything came out just as planned and Will’s professionalism is awesome.”

"Yes, yes, yes, we cannot say enough good things about our experience with Will. In 2014 after we worked with Ironwood Design on the layout and elevation plans for our new barn, Will created detailed drawings and Goosewing Timberworks went to work on the frame. Our dreams for the process and the structure were far exceeded. Will and his amiable team agreed to harvest Spruce and Cherry from our land and mill it on site. They used it for joists, posts, and rafters. The posts and beams were all carefully joined on site to the delight of our grandchildren. Despite the challenges of green wood, their enthusiastic efforts resulted in a beautiful building with remarkably fine joinery. It was completed on schedule and on budget. Five years later we fondly remember the day it was raised. We still take joy every time we look toward it, go in and inhale the still-fresh piney smell, and when we listen to smiling musicians perform inside the finely resonant soundbox that this awesome structure has proven to be."

"The breezeway is beautiful. So much in fact it's tempting to keep it as a pergola and not cover up those timbers! A huge thank you for all your work making this project a reality. We love the barn and have gotten dozens of compliments already. We also have greatly appreciated not only your craftsmanship, but your straightforwardness and great communication. We really couldn't have wished for anything more."
-Sadie and Nick Brightman, Lincoln, VT
"The quality of craftsmanship is mind blowing. The frame dimensions were exact and the process was planned and precise. Will is so nice and easy to work with. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. "
- Lonny Edwards, Lincoln VT
"We contracted with Will Gusakov and Goosewing Timberworks to design and build a small structure for our meditation garden. We met with Will and shared our vision of a structure that would complement our Japanese-themed garden. In short order, Will returned with the perfect design. The beauty and uniqueness of the finished structure far exceeded our expectations. Will’s creative design talents and timber framing skill resulted in a truly special creation. Will’s eye for incorporating unique detail into his projects is exceptional. Above and beyond Will’s previously mentioned skills, we were impressed with the ease of our collaboration."
