Inishcoo Island

Glenfort manufactured two contemporary style trusses for Inishcoo House. The house is a restored 18th century coastguard base standing on an uninhabited island just 5 minutes boat ride from the fishing village of Burtonport Co. Donegal.

The client contacted us at the early stages of the project putting forward ideas and suggestions on the type of roof structure they wanted. Our designers put together initial concept sketches and created a contemporary truss design incorporating glulam oak rafters with stainless steel flitch plates and tie bars. We also introduced the idea of exposed washers and bolts which were hand made to suit the truss rafters.
