Log Post and Beam home

post & beam homes

The Post and Beam construction style can be created by using square Timber Framing or Round Logs. PrecisionCraft offers both timber frame as well as log post and beam. For those who want to enjoy the warmth and grandeur of a log home without the use of traditional log wall construction, log post and beam may be the perfect option. PrecisionCraft can create a home that blends the best characteristics of a log home with more conventional exterior siding and interior color.

characteristics of a log post & beam home

  • Choose between, or use a combination of: lathed logs and handcrafted logs
  • Lathed logs are uniform in size - which can reach 24" in diameter
  • Handcrafted log posts and beams are tapered and retain drawknife marks
  • Handcrafted post and beam homes take longer to construct than lathed post and beam
  • Costs to build tend to be higher than milled log homes due to size of materials and labor
