Post and Beam Construction for the Olana Wagon House

The Olana Partnership chose post and beam construction for the Olana Wagon House project. Vermont Timber Works is proud to have been involved.

Heavy timbers, rough sawn hemlock and traditional joinery. Shop drawings, engineering, hand crafted fabrication and raising by our guys.

Clear sealer allows the natural color of the wood to show through and age. The hemlock timbers will gray up over time. Beautiful.

If you have a post and beam project in mind, please consider Vermont Timber Works, we would love to be involved. 802-886-1917
