Greetings from NH.

This blog’s main purpose is to address all the great questions we hear from you, our readers, about how to design, decorate, and essentially live life to the fullest in a post and beam home. These unique homes are so beautiful to live in and like any building project, can be rather daunting to design if you are not prepared. It should be fun after all!

This blog is written and maintained by “BeamBabe”, a post and beam skeptic-turned-enthusiast who is now living what she calls “The Post and Beam Dream”. BeamBabe regularly consults with interior designers, gardeners, builders and her close friends at��various post and beam building companies to bring you fun posts about designing, decorating and living in your own post and beam dream.

Many of these companies have been designing and building homes all over the country as well as in far-flung Europe and Australia, so BeamBabe is able to bring their useful tips right to you, from “Designing for Green Living” to ���How to design a barn-style home” all the way to “How in the world are we going to fit Great Aunt Ellen’s dining table in the new house!”

Each family’s requirements are unique��when it comes to designing a dream home.  BeamBabe and her friends first hand experiences��are here to give you practical advice, and hopefully provide a few laughs and insights, along the way.
