Blue Ox Timber Frames is currently hard at work with Rodel Construction on a new event center in Alexandria called Gathered Oaks. This is a sister property to Rustic Oaks, located in Moorehead, MN. Gathered Oaks consists of a remodeled and refurbished 100 year old barn and a new timber frame addition.

The original barn at Gathered Oaks, ready for timbers.

After the Rodel crew raised and prepped the original barn, we installed timbers for additional structural support. The timbers also happen to look quite nice.

Once the framework was installed in the original barn, we raised the timber frame addition which will double the size of the original space.

After months of planning, this project is going up fast. The summer wedding season is just around the corner, and Gathered Oaks will be busy!
