Scissors in the Hudson: Carol Kurth, AIA Shares the Story


A project popped up on Instagram, catching my attention with its custom timber trusses in a clean and crisp great room. It seemed familiar and I made a call upstairs confirming this was one of our projects, designed by Carol Kurth Architecture + Carol Kurth Interiors, raised in the Hudson Valley. I wanted to know more and was lucky enough to catch Carol Kurth (FAIA, ASID, and LEED AP) and her colleague Christine Lent (AIA) for a chat:

Throwback Thursday! Christine and Carol on the job site last year.

It was easy to hear the smile in Carol and Christine’s voices over the phone. Their energy was palpable and inspiring when talking residential architecture. Turns out like many homes, project planning started a few years back for this ‘mountain lodge’ and evolved over time into a ‘modern lodge’. It never lost the main purpose as: “a weekend retreat for a warm and close extended family who spends lots of time together”.

Find the Beetle: Stowe VT

Mike Beganyi, our New England representative spotted the beetle mallet during the raising of a frame in Stowe, Vermont.

Adaptable to all conditions, our timber framers raised the frame amongst sleet, snow, and the swosh of nearby skiers.

No stranger to the beetle, long-time timber frame craftsman Paul drove a few pegs home while pre-assembling one of the custom finished bents.

This slope-side home is another great project from Shope Reno Wharton being built by Sisler Builders.
