Tasman Trusses in Tasman

Tasman Trusses with exposed Purlins and Rafters

This house is located on a small, rural subdivision in an olive grove in Tasman, Nelson.  The architectural theme for the subdivision was of a Tuscan style with all houses required to have clay tile roofs.  The designer and clients decided to compliment this theme with four Timberworks Macrocarpa trusses together with exposed purlins and ridge beams.  The pergola rafters with their decorative ends were also provided by Timberworks.

“We thoroughly enjoyed the experience of working with Timberworks on our home in 2006.  We particularly appreciated the follow up service… We tell everyone who admires our lovely trusses where they were made.” – Trevor and Mary Furness-Weir

Hope Community Church Hall

Timberworks-designed Tasman Trusses for Hope Community Church

The design brief for the renovation of a 1918 church building asked for a vineyard/café like atmosphere.  The designer chose to use seven trusses plus some feature river stone elements, plywood feature paneling and timber pergolas to create this feel.  The inclusion of Timberworks trusses has helped change what could have been a utilitarian building into a warmer more inviting space.  The Macrocarpa trusses are connected with partially hidden steel connections which are painted black where exposed.
