Post & Beam Construction is similar to "Timberframe Construction". Ther main difference is that where Timberframe requires precision, and more costly hand crafted joinery, Post & Beam uses drilled and bolted steel bracket connections. Both typically utilize renewable locally grown and harvested native lumber, with low embodied energy. There is both an art and science to using green lumber straight from the mill, making this an attractive and affordable material and building system.
