Overview: Inspired by the beauty and history of their native Pennsylvania countryside, a team of engineers and craftsmen with an uncommon concern for quality has produced a very special line of pre-engineered cedar wood products. Of stirring beauty and sophistication, these creations have captured critical acclaim of design professionals worldwide. They include modular Gazebos, GardenHouses, Pavilions and Porch Systems designed for simple one day assembly. Vixen Hill additionally manufactures Shutters and assorted Shutter Hardware.
Vixen Hill products combine classic design and cabinetmaker joinery with computer-aided engineering, enabling our products to exceed the requirements of National Building Codes. More than 20 years of careful refinement have blended art and technology into products unsurpassed in quality and detail. Our commitment continues as we encourage customer comments and recommendations for product improvement.
Authentic architectural designs and historically proven joinery techniques, such as pegged mortise and tenon joints, yield genuine cedar wood shutters built to last a lifetime. We meticulously handcraft each shutter from western red cedar for the wood’s natural resistance to moisture and inherent durability.
Our custom shutter hardware is among the finest available. Vixen Hill pioneered the custom wood shutter revival decades ago. Our blacksmiths fabricate the finest exterior shutter hardware – built to perform and last. Pintels, Shutter Dogs, Hinges, Slide Bolts, Pulls Rings, Tie Backs and more – Vixen Hill offers a shutter hardware solution for your custom exterior shutters.
Vixen Hill retains the outdoor feeling of a traditional "fair weather" porch with the Three Season Porch System. Only Vixen Hill offers a modular porch system with options designed to retrofit an existing porch or design a new one. Interchangeable inserts allow you to change a screened porch to a glass enclosed one during cooler weather. Send a sketch and we'll do the design work.
A memory can begin with the bang of a wooden screen door. At Vixen Hill we don't take these experiences lightly. For those who find value with such memories, we offer a real wooden screen door. But they're not just any doors. They are built with the same meticulous attention and materials found in Vixen Hill Cedar Shutters. Screens are standard with optional storm glass and architectural inserts available to match the architecture of your home.
Cabanas are generally used as an accessory to poolside environments, providing a useful place for refuge, changing rooms and winter storage. Vixen Hill incorporates the same panels and accessories found in Porch Systems and Gardenhouses. Though Cabanas generally have impervious roofs, Vixen Hill also offers an Outdoor Shower Cabana with an open arbor style roof.
Create a personal outdoor retreat, safe from insects and inclement weather. A three-season Vixen Hill gardenhouse offers panoramic views with architectural details such as glass, screens and panels that quickly install for beauty, comfort and convenience. Outfit with a gas fireplace and plasma TV for an "escape with options." All models offer single or double roofs in a variety of materials including shingle or copper with cupolas for added appeal.
Make the entryway more inviting with a Vixen Hill Arbor. Vixen Hill's durable arbors provide a fragrant, seated sanctuary to rest in or receive guests. Arbors frame a destination while serving as a doorway to your personal world. Whether for entryway to a garden or sidewalk, the beauty of a rose covered arbor leaves a memorable impression.
Enhance your beach house or pool environment with a Vixen Hill shower cabana. Shower beneath a rose covered arbor roof while taking in the fragrance of a nearby herb garden. Use as a shower and changing room then as a seasonal storage area for outdoor furniture.
Gazebos and their larger cousins, "Pavilions", have served as centerpieces for gardens and parks for centuries. Their light airy design makes them inviting destinations to the admirer. These fair-weather structures are classic, serene, personal, a perfect spot for relaxation or celebration.
Vixen Hill was the first to offer pre-engineered Gazebo Kits. Light, yet strong materials were computer engineered to be interchangeable. The modules could easily be assembled in a single day by a semi-handy homeowner using simple hand tools. Vixen Hill Gazebos are not simple Wood Gazebos, but solid Cedar Gazebo kits designed to last for decades. And, if a part is damaged (falling trees etc) they can be easily replaced. Vixen Hill Gazebos and pavilions have been shipped throughout the world and up elevators to roof-top gardens. Design and integrity are everything to Vixen Hill. Though technically a “Gazebo Kit”, Vixen Hill prefers to call their product a “pre-engineered modular gazebo”, verbally like “separating the men from the boys”.
The legendary style and craftsmanship of the Vixen Hill Gazebo taken to a grand scale, the Pavilion can accommodate large gatherings and public performances while serving as the focal point of municipal-level landscape architectural designs.
Pergolas provide a shaded intimate retreat that's perfect for backyard barbeques, picnics and relaxation. Vixen Hill's cedar arbor roofs also provide the perfect growing environment for climbing plants. Draped with vines and flowers, there's no better place for a entertaining than beneath the shroud of nature.
add a touch of refinement and elegance to your garden. Our pergola kits are made of solid western red cedar with the quality you would expect from Vixen Hill, giving you a prefabricated pergola that looks like a custom pergola.
