Indoor Sports Court

Another great project brought to you by Littfin Design in collaboration with Joe Keating of JPK Contracting.

This project was quite different from anything else we had done before because of the incredibly large span involved. We are talking a single structure 106′ long and 84 feet wide. Not a typo. It’s a big one.

And where it gets even more interesting, is that some of the trusses span a bit over 50′. Now if you’re not familiar with construction, this may mean absolutely nothing to you, except that it’s big. But if you understand with a bit more how construction “stuff” works, your jaw probably dropped a little right about now. Because that is one big space to cover for one single truss.

The overall structure is quite beautiful, and quite complex. It required an unusual roof to be built, and as you can see from Joe Keating’s drone pictures, the webbing is really intricate. When you think about it for a moment, the engineering work that goes into putting those trusses together is impressive, isn’t it?

I don’t know about you, but I’m always in awe of the gals and guys who climb on those roofs like it’s nothing and go about their day like they’re on solid ground.

The location of the structure gives it a prime view of the sunset from their porch.

We can see the building slowly taking form from the sky in those drone pictures. I think that’s really neat!

Fast forward to mid-March and the barn now looks like a building from the ground, not just a skeleton!

It is going to sound Like I am repeating myself from the previous article, it is for a good reason: I believe what I’m saying. For the record, we do not get any kick backs from contractors or home builders. As an Architectural Design firm, we are fully independent. So any endorsement is made uniquely based on trust and the strong belief that the quality of the work is excellent.

So if you’re looking for a good contractor in the Winsted area, look no more. We have a good one right here for you. Give him a call. He is a busy guy, because he does good work. But if you are lucky enough to get to work with him, you will not regret it.
