Solid Construction, Classic Aesthetics
Building plans are available for rugged post-and-beam buildings as well as time-honored mortise-and-tenon buildings made with traditional joinery techniques. Both are classics in New England and easily stand up to harsh weather. By using rough-sawn, full-dimensional lumber grown in Vermont, you’ll get the idyllic, rustic look that’s characteristic of the region.
Following step-by-step plans means less risk of error, ensuring a more weather-resistant and durable building, as well as less wasted material.
