Post and Beam Homes: Log or Timber Frame?

Log post and beam homes are very similar in structure to timber post and beam homes. Your selection of log versus timber however is often dictated by personal style. Choose handcrafted log for a rustic appearance and timber frame for a more refined look and feel.
