Timber Frame Octagon Design

    The new addition at Sonny’s Place in Somers, CT will feature this incredible 70' clear span timber frame octagon. It will be one of the largest clear span timber frame structures in New England.

    To get a better idea of scale our design manager created this rendering showing our 22' x 32' Carriage Barn with 10' Lean-To inside the octagon.

    Designed and engineered using traditional joinery along with concealed steel reinforcement where required, the largest timbers are 10" x 20" x 26'. Timbers are FOHC (free of heart center). This means timbers do not consist of the “pith” or center of a tree. These came from some big logs!

    The timber frame octagon is 4,200 sq. ft. with 18' eave height. Massive!
