Corey Hill Pavilion c.2020
This pavilion was designed as a “cooking pavilion” for outdoor summer grilling. The full-length monitor was added for grilling ventilation, but also as a design element that harkens to the local vernacular sugarhouses of Geauga County. The structure measures 18′ x 28″ and is joined in white oak, cherry, eastern hemlock, all held together with black locust pegs and four red oak wedges. The gables are queen-post trusses and the central cross-frame is a sling blade truss that utilizes two naturally curved cherry timbers.
