Take a stroll down the historic town center of Randolph, VT and you’ll see there’s a new custom kiosk in town. TimberHomes built the frame over the winter, the first of it’s kind for us, and we’re looking forward to building more of these neat structures soon. White oak posts, a local timber species chosen for rot resistance, carry the roof. Cedar shingles and copper drip edge are finishing touches that will keep the kiosk dry and make for a handsome finish. Intersecting cross pieces allow for eight signboards, and four separate areas for information to be presented. This kiosk will be outfitted with a digital map of the town and overhead lighting, and will be decorated by the Randolph Garden Club. A four sided hip roof covers the frame, and makes for a cool timber tent effect. TimberHomes makes a classic trail kiosk that works well for parks and trailheads, but the town of Randolph needed something with more space for signage, that would match the traditional New England aesthetic of downtown. This custom kiosk does the job- we look forward to seeing it finished out, and in full bloom once the Garden Club has done their planting.
TimberHomes also built a welcome sign for the town, which was installed on the same day a few miles down the road. See photos below, and check out a story in the Randolph Herald, a local paper, for the backstory on how the whole project came to fruition.
