42' Octagonal Timber Frame Water Tower (Stonington CT)

New Featured Project: 42' Octagonal Timber Frame Water Tower, Stonington, CT

This is one of the oldest properties in Stonington, dating back to the 1700s, with an original colonial-style timber frame home. As one of the first homes in the town with running water, water pressure was created by gravity feed via the original water tower. When the old water tower was no longer structurally sound, we were called upon to build a new one in the same style as the old one. The result is accurate to the time period, and should it be located on the shore, could pass as a lighthouse.
