This heavy timber project features a douglas fir timber frame for the Bethlehem Monastery of Poor Clares.
The 2-1/2 story frame reaches just shy of 45 feet at the top of the cupola.
We worked with IMC Construction
Company, Meyer Consulting Engineers
Ventures, Create Architecture Planning
& Design and
The Mills Building Corporation.
This timber frame features traditional wood joinery, a small bit of steel, and over 31,000 board feet of heavy timber.
