The thing about post and beam architecture is this: it creates strong and visible features within a home which add complete uniqueness to a space. To say it is like looking at the “skeleton” of a home is accurate, but this statement doesn’t do the beauty of the timber frame justice. Every room in the home will have a post or a beam (most often, plenty of both) which can either become the central focal point or add to the overall effect of a room. As you view each of these rooms, consider how the post and beam structure has either been brought to the forefront, or incorporated into the total look of the room. Yankee Barn Homes clients have a wonderful ability to make their mark on how the structure is integrated into the style and decor of their home to make them uniquely their own.
Post and Beam Rooms
In presenting these photographs from post and beam homes, my intent is to reveal how different in style one timber frame can be from the next. Virtually, any style of home is possible; it’s all in what the creator/homeowner envisions.
