This is the true story of how Ark Encounter came together. Discover amazing construction details of the largest timber-framed building in the world.


See the vision of this full-sized, all-wood ark come together, dream by beam

Located in Williamstown, Kentucky, Ark Encounter is a one-of-a-kind historically themed attraction.

Here are a few of the amazing construction details, you will discover:

  • The skills and techniques of the Amish craftsmen primarily responsible for construction of the timberframe structure
  • How the 3-million board feet of wood used could be laid out over 600 miles from Kentucky to Philadelphia
  • The structure is so large, it is permitted to hold 10,000 people
  • The size of the structure is 510 feet long; 85 feet wide; 51 feet high based on the Bible's dimensions

Though Noah built the Ark in 55–75 years, we didn’t want to take that long! To build this engineering masterpiece quickly, God brought together some of the most skilled craftsman in the USA, including crews of Amish and Mennonite woodworkers from hundreds of miles away. This exciting new themed attraction opened to the public on July 7 and has received huge interest from media worldwide. Unbelievers are often like the scoffers of Noah’s day, but after you’ve perused this book you will understand how Noah and his family may have constructed the craft that ferried man and animals from the original perfect earth to the scarred planet on which we live today.
