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.
