Craftsbury Outdoor Center – Craftsbury, Vermont
The Craftsbury Outdoor Center is a newly constructed 3,000+ sq.ft. community space. Its lodge and fitness center are connected by a spacious deck. This energy efficient building was constructed with Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) walls. A combination of steel framing and wood purlins were used to frame the roof. The exterior wood columns (located on the spacious deck) provide outside support to the connecting roof structure. Steel “trees” were used on the interior of the building. The steel works both as a brace and column to support the roof.
