Raising a timber frame is an important and exciting event – it is an age-old craft where the bones of the project come together.
Farmington, NY (PRWEB) March 31, 2014
New Energy Works Timberframers invites the public to join their timber frame raisings in upstate New York in the Spring of 2014. Timber frame post and beam raisings offer a chance to witness the culmination of months of planning, designing, and craftsmanship.
“Raising a timber frame is an important and exciting event – it is an age-old craft where the bones of the project come together,” explains Brian Mosch, General Manager of New Energy Works.
Deerfield Golf and Country Club's remodel will revitalize the existing structure, opening up and joining interior spaces while providing uninterrupted connectivity to the course. The club will host weddings and gatherings in two banquet rooms each featuring large timber frame covered patios. New timber porches will create a bridge to the outdoors with plentiful fairway views. This project will be raised in stages with the largest structures going up in April 2014 in Brockport, NY.
“Deerfield is an intricate renovation of existing spaces with a few new additions,” comments Ty Allen, Design Manager of New Energy Works. “Six new exterior timber frame areas will encourage patrons to enjoy fresh air and expansive views while providing shelter from the elements.”
The Finger Lakes Museum project started with reclamation of an existing barn frame. New Energy Works refurbished the frame and its joinery. They will re-raise the antique timbers in Branchport, NY where the new-old barn will serve as the Creekside Center focused on Finger Lakes wetland wildlife.
"The Finger Lakes Museum's Board of Trustees is excited about the prospect of turning a 19th century agricultural barn, which was donated to the project, into the museum's Creekside Center– a kayak and canoe livery that will enable visitors to enjoy a wetland wildlife experience from a waters-eye perspective. I would also like to express our gratitude to New Energy Works Timberframers for helping us to bring this part of the project to fruition." - John Adamski, President, Board of Trustees.
Timber framing is a traditional form of building structures of heavy timber jointed together with pegged mortise and tenon joints — no nails. The craft is sought after not only for it’s aesthetic, but for the longevity and efficiency it provides over more common structures. Whether you’re planning a home, designing for a business, curious about the use of timber as structure, or interested in heavy timber as a sustainable construction method, this is an event worth seeing.
