This frame design started as a cabin for M & A & family but morphed into the “Vinsted” with the expansion of their winery. They liked the parallel chord truss I had used for the North House Fish House design with multiple X’s (pulled loosely from the St Andrew’s crosses of the Stav Churches of Norway). The frame joinery was completed at North House Folk School in a custom scheduled Build Your Own Timber Frame - Large Frames session. More than 30 family and friends helped cut the frame in the 12 days at North House. Many of these same people reconvened to assist with the frame raising. The original cabin design - in a simpler form - also became reality with the family completing the frame at North House.
