Legacy kit finished as a Post and Beam Airplane Hangar

One of our favorite things to do at Legacy is listen to the dreams of our customers and work to make them come to life! Each of our customers comes with different ideas and we pride ourselves on our ability to meet our customer’s specific needs.

On this Eastern Nebraska project, our customer wanted a classy way to store their equipment, while still embracing the rustic setting. One important piece of equipment – their airplane!

In order to make this happen, we upgraded the trusses to accommodate a 48’ clear span and raised the walls to ensure there was ample room. We were able to create an open space conducive to the wingspan of the airplane, without supporting beams, by using kiln-dried Douglas fir timbers. Douglas fir is used for the structural bent work components on all of our projects as it provides a sturdier build than other wood species. Finally, with the addition of a hydraulic door, their idea became a reality!
