Ribbon Cutting at Great Country Timber Frames

We were honored to be joined by Lindy Lee Gold, Senior Development Specialist from the CT Department of Economic & Community Development and Lori L. Spielman, First Selectman from the Town of Ellington, for our ribbon cutting this afternoon at Great Country Timber Frames. Everett IV, Chris, and Everett Skinner III cut the ribbon and hosted the event for members of the media, Chamber of Commerce, and government officials.

It was great to visit with everyone, celebrate the ribbon cutting, and demonstrate our CNC machine, which is one of only three of its class in the country. It’s not every day that you get to witness a ceremony such as this, and watch with awe as you see a very rare piece of precision machinery in action, cutting timbers for post & beam barns and timber frame homes. We’re so excited for what the future holds for Great Country Timber Frames. Today’s ribbon cutting was a tremendous moment in the history of the company, the Skinner family, and the timber framing trade. Thanks for joining us!

Tomorrow morning at 9, we’ll be welcoming the general public to tour the facility, learn about timber frame joinery in post & beam barns, and see the CNC machine in action. Don’t miss it!
