The Tale of the Tower

Building a Timber Frame Observation Tower in Greenwich, CT. Watch the story of this unique project that will leave you smiling at the end.

Made of Alaskan yellow cedar glulam timbers—one of the most durable wood species in the world, perfect for the outdoor environment—and locally sourced black locust decking, this timber frame observation tower was a dream come true for our customer in Greenwich, CT. From the top of the 24' tower, you can see Long Island Sound and New York City. Our crew had a ton of fun designing, building, and raising this unique project and we can’t wait for the next one!
