Yesterday we saw the outside of Ned Pruyn’s Artist Studio on the lake at Great Camp Santanoni in the Adirondacks near Newcomb, NY.  We were very fortunate as one of the curators of the camp was on the tour and had the keys and let us inside.  He said they really never let anyone in.  The inside was so crowded with our group that I could barely take a photo.  The structure holding up the ceiling (and roof) was all timber framed unlike the rest of Santanoni.  This Artist Studio was not designed by Robert Robertson but by the Architectural firm of Delano & Aldrich.  Delano and Aldrich also designed the stone arched Creamery at the Farm and the stone arched Gatehouse at the entrance to Santanoni.    Not only is this structure timber framed but there are large metal tie rods to keep everything plumb and level.  The ceilings above the timbers are bead board.  The huge window lets in natural light and has wonderful views of Lake Newcomb.

In this final view you can see the Camp Santanoni carpenter that resides here for the summer and maybe longer has a small stove here and bed and a great place to stay while working on the camp.
