John Calvin Stevens Gazebo

Freeport Woodworking was delighted to be selected for the restoration of a historic gazebo, designed originally in the 1800's by one of Maine's premier architects, John Calvin Stevens. This gazebo on Cushing's Island, Maine had deteriorated to the point where it needed to be totally rebuilt, not just restored. A new roof, support structure and railings were recreated offsite using the original as a template and then reassembled on location. The octagonal cedar shingle roof was built with rafters and furring strips patterned from the original collapsed roof structure. The interior view shows the roof framing detail as it had been designed by John Calvin Stevens.

Dimensions: Rebuilt to exact specifiactions of John Calvin Stevens original design.
