Timber Frame Craftsmanship in a Small Package

A single Mini provides up to 12 square feet of display space, and comes fully assembled and ready to install. The design of the Mini is playful yet robust, and the price is right. We designed this unit for a bike trail project and liked it so much that we decided to offer it for general sale. Like all of our kiosks, the mini features hand-cut, traditional timber framing joinery (mortise and tenon), and naturally rot-resistant timber from northern New England.

Mini Kiosk Installation

Our kiosks are simple to install and the work can be readily done by a group of 3-4 people following our instructions. If you would like help with installation, we’ll be happy to provide a quote. The following are basic instructions (we provide more comprehensive instructions with your kiosk):

  • Dig two 12″ holes, 4′-3″ deep, 2′ 9″ apart on center.
  • Attach roofing metal to kiosk and place in holes, being careful to get it plumb.
  • Backfill holes around posts with crushed stone (no concrete footings)

Standard Options for Mini Kiosks

Delivery & Shipping

Our prices assume pickup at our shop in Vershire, VT. A single Mini kiosk can fit readily in to the back of a pickup truck.  Please discuss vehicle requirements with us depending on your order.

  • Delivery: We will charge the Federal Standard loaded mileage rate of $1.50/mile each way to deliver, plus $20/unit for loading and unloading, respectively.
  • Shipping: For single units to be delivered more than 200 miles from Vershire it will probably be more economical for us to ship by common carrier, in which case the unit will come on a custom-made pallet, and protected by plywood. Please contact us for a current packing and shipping quote. There must be a forklift available at the delivery address.
