Our newest timber frame pavilion design, the Bridger, is rapidly becoming a customer favorite. The Bridger has traditional common purlins and king post trusses with straight bottom chords and arched braces. It’s a timeless design. Like all our timber frame pavilions, the Bridger features authentic mortise & tenon joinery with oak pegs throughout. Shown here is a Bridger timber frame pavilion at the heart of an outdoor living space in Suffield, CT.
We use authentic mortise & tenon joinery with oak pegs in all our timber frame pavilions. This means that the timbers are joined with wood connections and then secured with oak pegs instead of nails or other conventional means. In this sense, our timber frame pavilions are more similar to 1800s post & beam barns than anything else. We make the joinery to exacting standards on a CNC machine in our Ellington, CT shop—Great Country Timber Frames—which results in precise and strong connections. When it comes to timber frame pavilions, ours are the real deal: authentic, timeless, and exceptionally built.
