Post and Beam Home Styles for Barns and Houses
The images above show different ways that a timber frame home or post and beam home can be styled. Pick the style you like and give our customer service team a call. We are here to help you design the perfect timber frame!
Heavy timber buildings start with a basic "bent" (a timber frame that is the cross section of a building), and add components to make the different forms - a saltbox, farm house, fancy barn, two story colonial and finally a hammer beam cape. Purlins, joists and connectors connect the bents together to give a building its shape. By clicking on the images, a 3d .pdf of the entire post and beam frame can be opened and rotated so it can be viewed from various perspectives.
Roof pitches can be raised or lowered and bents made bigger or smaller. Shed and gable dormers can be added as well as fancy curved braces, finials, hips and valleys. We have engineered and framed buildings up to eighty feet wide and over 100 feet long as well as small homes and cottages. As a custom shop, we work with our clients individual needs and their particular style to come up with frame designs that are unique, interesting and beautiful. We enjoy working with our clients' architects when designing and entire building or just simple trusses to dress up a great room.
