This month our team will be raising the timber frame for the new winery and tasting room at Sannino Vineyard in Cutchogue, New York. The fresh sawn Douglas fir timbers will be joined using traditional mortise and tenons, secured with hardwood pegs. The same timber frame artisans who crafted the frame in our shop will be on-site to raise it, preassembling first thing, driving the wooden pegs, and employing use of a crane for the heaviest lifts.
Raising a timber frame is an important and exciting event–it offers a chance to witness the culmination of months of planning, dreaming, and the detailed effort of an age-old craft where the bones of the project come together.
The raising will be open to the public and is happening on the site of the new winery at 15975 Rte. 48 in Cutchogue, New York on October 30, 2018.
