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!

Custom post and beam dining hall, Camp Hayden in Fishkill, NY.  These finished pictures are wonderful, thank you John at The Geddis Partnership for sending them to us!   Let’s work together again soon…

 Interior post and beam features tall columns and douglas fir timber framing, steel joinery.  Love the contrast.

Day time or night time, this building is creative, interesting and gorgeous.  Do you agree?

As promised, some pictures of our post and beam raising.

Flying in the timber trusses and dovetailed purlins.

Post and Beam Entryway, King Post Design.

Looking out from the timber frame octagon, COOL!  Custom designed and engineered for a New York State home.

Post and Beam Monastery

Now THAT is a post and beam cupola…see the king post trusses?  One of our most beautiful and complex timber frames is our Bethlehem Monastery timber frame.

Here we are, ready to raise. Bring it on, where’s that crane?

Nice progress Vermont Timber Works!

The NEW Chapel for Holy Apostles is making incredible progress! OR should I say Sullivan Brothers and all their subcontractors are? Either way, this timber frame project is stunning and all involved are very happy.

Post and Beam and Much More…

What goes into a post and beam home you ask?  Ok, you didn’t ask, but I’m going to tell you. The posts and the beams of course.  Don’t forget the braces, connectors, plates, joists, the roof system which may be a structural timber ridge with purlins or rafters.  What did I forget?

How about the thought?  At Vermont Timber Works, we custom design each post and beam home.  MUCH thought goes into each one, designing,  drafting and engineering.

OH, and we hand craft each timber frame, am I proud about that?  I sure am.  Vermont Timber Works, Inc.
