This unusual frame design is a variation on stick built frames common to turn of the century hay barns in Vermont. These barns were often built with 2x lumber nailed together at two foot intervals, unlike timber frames, which generally uses large timbers spaced at ten to twelve foot intervals. This barn combines 2x lumber and large timber sizes at six foot intervals. Traditional mortise and tenon joinery is used alongside malleable steel connections. The frame imagines a space in between stick framing and timber framing, expressing a joy in the way both styles use wood’s characteristics differently to achieve similar outcomes. Of all our frames, this one is most explicitly a love letter to lumber, and the myriad ways sawn lumber can be configured in wooden buildings.
