Post and beam homes do not have the design limitations found with a stacked log package due to settling.
Without those rigid design guidelines, the door is open for architectural expression and award winning design creativity.
Working with our in-house designers you can create a custom plan or you can select any of our standard floor
plans and adapt them to suit your requirements.
Any of our stacked log plans can easily be adapted to a round log post and beam style.
Posts are prepared from Douglas Fir, Engelmann Spruce or Western Red Cedar.
Each post is milled flat on the side, and
the space between them is infilled with conventional framed walls, completing the weather tight envelope.
At each location of a stud wall, the posts are grooved to receive the wall coverings. (Drywall and/or Sheathing).
Traditionally, each horizontal log is a structural beam that will support a dimensional framing member.
These beams are hand crafted from large diameter Douglas Fir for the superior strength and stunning beauty.
The beams are milled flat and grooved as required to accept floor and wall framing.
Post and beam homes are an increasingly popular alternative to the stacked log building style.
The natural character of the hand crafted logs combined with the finishing flexibility and endless selection of finishing
material choices complement any personal finishing style.
Though each piece is more labor intensive, a post and beam structure typically costs less than a stacked log building,
because it requires less volume of logs.
