Post and Beam Houses, Homes, Barns and Pergolas
We want to help you learn about post and beam construction.
Give us a
call if you are thinking of building a post and beam barn, garage,
horse barn or pergola. We will give you great customer service and
deliver a beautiful top quality timber frame - on time and on budget.
We will even provide a 3d computer generated model of your frame prior
to fabrication so you can see exactly where all the beams are going,
and how they will look.
The images below are of timber frames and post and beam
frames. Although the phrases "timber frame" and "post & beam" are
often used synonymously, their meanings are slightly different. Timber
framing involves the intricate cutting of joints to hold the timbers
together. It is complicated and beautiful, using techniques that have
been around for thousands of years. Post and beam framing is more
simple - and actually an older style - with main carrying members
(beams or lintels) supporting joists and rafters that are notched into
the beams. Stonehenge is the prefect example of post and beam
construction using stone instead of timber. Click on "timber
