Post and Beam / Need a Plan?

January 11, 2014 Leave a comment

Is a post and beam constructed home for you? If so, and you do not have a design picked out yet, we can help.  Always offer custom designs, but how about something to get you started. Let’s take a look a the South Peak Resort design, available from our friends at Bonin Architects.


What I  find very nice about this design is the kitchen is open to the dining area, but not completely open to the living space.  You get some separation, what do you think?

3 Bedrooms upstairs, great for a mid size family and the laundry space?  Love it!

This design will also suit very nicely for a vacation home.  Do you agree?

Let’s go skiing!

This post and beam pool house features our king post truss design with purlins.

The stone work and the fireplace is beautiful, I hope we can get some finished pictures.

Douglas fir timbers with a satin polyurethane, very pretty.  And, these timbers will deepen in color over time, more red with a hint of orange.
