Planning For Your Next Outdoor Structure

When you decide the time is right to add to your outdoor living space, you may be wondering how to find the best structure to fit your needs. There are plenty of questions you can ask yourself to help narrow down which structure is right for you. In this blog, we’ll take a look at some of the most common questions that can help you identify which choice is the best for you and your home.

Poolside Alpine Timber Frame Pavilion

Relax by the pool in style with a timber frame pavilion. This is our Alpine series, distinguished by its hammer beam trusses and black powder coated steel straps. This particular pavilion is 16' x 20', and has stone pillars and a stone seating area. Authentic mortise & tenon joinery can be found throughout. Our pavilions make for great outdoor living spaces, providing shade and shelter from the elements. Let’s take a closer look. 

A Mountain Modern Custom Timber Frame Home

In the mountains of Vermont, we built an incredible “mountain modern” timber frame home, combining the rustic aspects of timber framing with today’s modern architecture. The frame of this 3,650 sq. ft. home was constructed using Douglas Fir timbers, and is comprised of two floors. The angled roofline and massive windows with the Douglas Fir frame and reclaimed barn board siding combine for a stunning sight. This is certainly a stellar property, ready for hosting friends and family year-round. 

Coastal Maine Carriage Barn Re-Creation

This customer wanted to recreate a barn from their past using today’s timber framing technology. They turned to The Barn Yard to replicate the design from a historic barn they previously owned. The design was different from our standard Lenox Carriage Barns, featuring common purlins in place of common rafters, and cut from Hemlock instead of our usual Eastern White Pine or Douglas Fir. We were very excited to help bring a piece of this customer’s past back to the present. This barn was shipped to Coastal Maine in kit form. Let’s take a photo tour of this barn, which is used a workshop and storage space for the owners.
