Cost effective, eco-friendly and flexible to meet your design demands. That’s why post frame construction is a great option for homes, garages, commercial buildings and more!
Unless you are familiar with post frame construction, you may not realize how similar it is to the more familiar stud-wall variety. Many people associate post frame construction with farm buildings, but they go far beyond housing farm implements. They are a viable construction technique that provides both style and flexibility.
What Is Post Frame Construction?
“Post-frame construction is an engineered wood-frame building system that feature large, solid sawn posts or laminated columns instead of wood studs, steel framing, or concrete masonry. They transfer loads to the ground or surface-mounted to a concrete pier or masonry foundation, and may use plastic barrier systems for enhanced protection of wood and concrete posts or piers. The method is popular with architects, engineers, and building designers because it offers them design flexibility.”
