Building a Post and Beam Home.

Building your own home is a big deal...Even better if you are building a post and beam home. This may not be your first home as post and beam construction offered by a high end timber framer will be an investment. So, maybe it's your second home?

Interested in hand crafted quality, mortise and tenon joinery and custom design? Well then, you are in the right place. Vermont Timber Works has been building timber frames for over 27 years. 

So many choices, so many timber frame do you know which one is a good match for you? Do what you are doing right now, research and read about timber framers and what they offer. Ask about previous projects, clients and references. Word of mouth is a powerful thing.

From your ideas to the shop drawings to raising your post and beam home, let Vermont Timber Works give you a hand.  We are happy to talk with you, tell us about your project!

Post and Beam Horse Barn

Post and beam construction makes for a wonderful horse barn. This design features a shed roof for tractor or horse trailer. (Great idea Carole)!

Designed with horses in mind and engineered for hay storage by Monahon Architects & Vermont Timber Works, Inc.

Time to fill up this hayloft! The snow is melting as the sun warms. Mud season is going quickly this year.

Traditional joinery, native hemlock timbers, carefully hand crafted for 2 very lucky horses.
