This entrance structure for a residential development in Mont-Tremblant, Quebec pushed the boundaries of what can be done in solid timber.  This type of design would normally use glu-lam timbers, however the clients wanted a more natural appearance for their project.  This resulted in very creative design and timber engineering which allowed us to span the 28 foot cantilevered overhang.  A 50 foot long built up beam made of three individual timbers, called a "keyed beam", formed the key structural component for this roof.  All timbers are select structural Douglas fir.
