CNC Barn Raising Day in Photos

Our crew of timber framers raised the frame for the new CNC barn addition in Tolland, CT. Many features make this 32' x 32' Post & Beam Carriage Barn unique, including key beams and a transom dormer, not to mention being an addition to the most iconic barn in Tolland, CT.

We’re honored to be constructing the addition to this well-known barn in Tolland, CT on the CNC Software grounds. Special consideration has been made to match the joinery, details, and timber framing style of the existing 1800s barn.
