Post & Beam Construction

Post and beam construction is a building method that passes on dimensional lumber in favor of heavy timbers. The use of heavy timbers reduces the need for load-bearing walls, thus creating dramatically open interiors that are both eye-catching and comforting. This construction style is celebrated for its beauty, longevity and quick assembly.

The timbers used in post and beam buildings are never chemically treated, meaning the design of the space can be centered around the natural beauty of the lumber. Wood homes or wood barns that are constructed using the stick framing method are prone to rotting and warping, and must be covered with drywall to hide the ugly effects of chemical treatments to the posts.

Post and beam barns and barn-style homes will last for 100 years or more if given proper upkeep and attention over time. The structural integrity of a wood frame barn or a post and beam house means they are often the last buildings standing in the wake of a natural disaster.

Barn construction is made easy with the post and beam method. DC Structures’ innovative line of kits relies on post and beam framing to make the assembly of your structure fast, efficient and without complication. Our builder-friendly post and beam barn plans make your project run more smoothly, as we offer contractor support throughout the duration of your build.
