This fall, the Tim­ber Framers Guild will raise the new Gate­way Com­mu­nity Vis­i­tor’s Cen­ter in Schuylerville, New York. The new tim­ber frame build­ing will be con­structed at the site of Gen­eral Bur­goyne’s sur­ren­der in the Rev­o­lu­tion­ary War, and will serve as the start­ing point for tourism of his­toric sites in the up­per Hud­son Val­ley. From Septem­ber 5th through the 15th, in­struc­tors will work with more than fifty stu­dents and vol­un­teers to process ap­prox­i­mately 24,000 board feet of lo­cally sourced white pine and red oak tim­bers to form the com­mu­nity cen­ter. Plus, a com­mu­nity hand rais­ing of the Gate­way Com­mu­nity Vis­i­tor’s Cen­ter frame will take place on Septem­ber 14th and 15th to top off the build.

“A hand rais­ing such as the one we’ll con­duct to con­clude this event is some­thing the com­mu­nity and the par­tic­i­pants will re­mem­ber for the rest of their lives,” states Tim­ber Framers Guild Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor, Jeff Arvin.

The Tim­ber Framers Guild is a non­profit or­ga­nized ex­clu­sively for ed­u­ca­tional pur­poses to pro­vide train­ing pro­grams for tim­ber framers, dis­sem­i­nate in­for­ma­tion about tim­ber fram­ing to the pub­lic, and serve as a gen­eral cen­ter of tim­ber fram­ing in­for­ma­tion for the pro­fes­sional and gen­eral pub­lic alike. If you’d like to be in­volved in the hand rais­ing of the Gate­way Com­mu­nity Vis­i­tor’s Cen­ter, or with the Tim­ber Framers Guild in gen­eral, please e-mail info@tfguild.org.
