SEGMENT: SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENTIAL
About This Project: Amberley Residence is a modern glulam post-and-beam home built on the shores of Lake Huron. The heavy timber design features multiple butterfly roof angles and delivers long clear spans that offer unobstructed views of the water. The unique angles required special connections to achieve the design. One large beam that crosses the entire living area would have been too large for highway transport, so two beams had to be spliced together on site to overcome this logistical constraint. The large beam was made by fastening the two individual beams together with a steel plate connector and nearly 100 screws which are concealed in a recess on top of the beam.
