Post and Beam Barn
The Post and Beam Barn
When you want to build a legacy, build a post and beam barn. At Country Carpenters, we have several traditional styles and sizes of barns to suit anyone’s needs. Today, you don’t have to live on a farm to enjoy the benefits of a beautiful, sturdy post and beam barn. In Post and Beam construction, heavy timber framework is fastened together with mortise and tenon joinery. An age-old traditional style of building, these structures are extraordinarily strong and stand for hundreds of years. Our precut barn kits are available in many sizes and shapes, and can be customized to suit your personality and needs. We are Country Carpenters of Hebron CT. We produce a large variety of beautiful pre-engineered post and beam barns and small buildings.
Our post and beam barns are functional, beautiful and built to last. Our Connecticut company was founded in 1974, and our building kits have been shipped all over the world. Post & beam construction is a time-honored method of building the framework using upright posts and horizontal beams. The hallmark of this style of construction is exposed timber, a central element of the building’s profile. These structures can be erected relatively quickly due to their lack of load-bearing walls. With fewer constraints on structural requirements, post and beam construction lends itself to highly customizable floor plans—meaning windows, doors, and horse stalls can be added almost anywhere the owner sees fit. This method of construction is comparatively uncommon, likely a result of high material costs and a general lack of understanding by contractors.
Our Barns Will Last for Generations
The use of large timbers in post and beam construction means fewer support beams are needed, thus creating dramatically open interior spaces. Exposed beams and wooden interiors lend a warm and airy essence of natural elegance to the building. Country Carpenters of Hebron Connecticut provides pre-cut building kits for all types of rustic post and beam buildings. We have shipped these kits all over the world.
