Using Post and Beam Techniques

Post and beam homes are popular for luxury homes and lodges and also for vacation get-aways.

Noted for its strength and endurance, post and beam construction is also strikingly beautiful! Almost a forgotten art, post and beam construction dates back several hundred years.
