From centuries old Japanese Pagodas, to European cathedrals, French homes, Amish barns and California’s Craftsman style homes, timber framing has been around for centuries and has been used in almost every architectural style imaginable. There are many influences to choose from and virtually no limit to the design possibilities with timber framing. With the knowledge and experience that Pacific Post and Beam offers, any style of home can be created with the handcrafted details of a timber frame structure.
The timber frame is truly a unique style of construction that few are able to provide in these days of fast-paced, bottom-line construction methods. The rewards come to those, however, who take the time and energy to embark on a design that begins at the core of the home, its structure. The timber frame instills a timeless sense of quality and stability that is rare in the modern construction techniques and forever expresses the embodied energy of the craftsman who created it. How often do you see the actual structure of a building create such a fabulous sense of space and naturally occurring rhythms throughout the structure in an energy efficient modern home? This is the type of timber frame you can expect from Pacific Post and Beam.
Pacific Post & Beam has been building custom timber frame homes for over 28 years and has built hundreds of homes. Our projects vary from small cabins to modest 1500 square foot homes to a 5000 square foot Craftsman bungalow, timberframe trusses for a 17,000 square foot estate, to a 40,000 square foot winery, with no two projects being the same. If you have gone wine tasting on the Central Coast you have likely appreciated our timber truss projects.
The diversity of projects and the fact that Pacific Post and Beam has designed most of our homes and erected all of our frames has provided us with a firm grasp of California’s strictly enforced building codes. This knowledge ensures that design and construction processes flow smoothly and that you end up with your dream home.
Being a custom design and build timber framing company rather than a mass production kit manufacturer, Pacific Post and Beam can provide the custom services and attention needed to create a truly unique timber framed home that satisfies your personal preferences. This way our clients get the style of home they want rather than being locked into generic floor plans or a package deal that does not satisfy their needs. Whether you’d like a Tudor, Spanish, Cape Cod, Prairie style home, or anything in between, Pacific Post and Beam can make it possible.
