Project Description:

Vermont Viking Longhouse frame of FOHC Douglas Fir raised over 3 days during beautiful fall weather in southern Vermont. Frame is 20’x60′ with a 34′ long loft floor above. King post truss over the great room provides a unobstructed space below and a 9’x9’x 30′ high cupola will make an awesome look-out tower to warn of pillaging raids.Much thanks to Dan Atwood Const. of Chester VT for the raising assistance and to the fine folks at Firetower Engineered Timber for their expert help. And thank you to Dorval Timber for the beautiful Douglas Fir timber.

  1. Are floor plans available- locations of bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, dining rm, fireplace?
    I’m looking for a similar simple structure.
    Dimensions – heights and lengths would be helpful.
    Can I purchase the high level and plans? If so for how much?
    Many thanks
