A Call for Instructors for Schuylerville, New York Community Building Project

Neil Godden will be leading Guild members and community volunteers in the creation of a beautiful Dutch-inspired timber frame for the Canal Region Gateway Visitor Center in Schuylerville, New York. Schuylerville is the site of British General Burgoyne’s surrender, marking a significant turning point in the Revolutionary War. The Visitors' Center will serve as the starting point for people wishing to visit the historic sites of the upper Hudson Valley. Mike Beganyi is the frame designer.

This project has two phases. Phase one is in  August, and phase two is September 5-15.   

During phase one, we will work with eight volunteers to fabricate and erect the walk-out level of this three level structure.  Phase two will have more volunteers and culminates in a community hand raising.  The annual conference follows the raising. 

Right now, we are seeking five experienced and three novice instructors.  If you are interested, please send your qualifications to

Volunteer registration and camping information will be on our website in mid-May. Stay tuned, we will alert you when registration opens.
