The Timber Frame Burger King: A New Landmark for Lunenburg

Right at the 3-way intersection in the heart of historic Lunenburg, within sight of iconic Lunenburg Academy, anyone can go into the new Wilsons Esso Go Store & Burger KingĀ and see some traditional timber framing. How very fitting for a town famous for its boatbuilding (ever hear of the Bluenose?), as many similar techniques are used in the two trades.

This is a partial or hybrid timber frame, as the conventionally-framed walls (“stick-framed” to a timberframer) bear some of the load.
