Lancaster County Timber Frames recently completed the Vineyard project at the Willow Creek Farm in West Cape May, New Jersey. The timber framed section of the project measures 50 feet by 120 feet with a substantial porte cochÃ©re and vestibule. The seven interior trusses have a free span of 50 feet. A built-up roof with white pine tongue & groove boards is being installed.
The building is picturesquely set in amongst the grape vines. The farm is a new venture; this year’s first harvest yielded 3,000 cases of wine. Larger harvests are expected in the coming years. The building will house the vineyard’s production and storage center, and it will contain a full service kitchen which will allow it to be used as a banquet and event center.
