Kennett Square, Pennsylvania
Hugh Lofting Timber Framing provided structural trusses and tongue-and-groove decking for the roof of this bonsai house and studio in Kennett Square, Pa. The Douglas Fir trusses were designed with solid king posts and elegantly curved glue-laminated (glulam) timber bottom chords. Glulam timbers are extremely versatile and strong and can make possible dramatic shapes, spans, and curves, which would be almost impossible with normal timber stock.
