Post and bim. Construction technology of a modern wooden house

Post and Beam from the English words Post and Beam (pillar and beam). In Russia, houses and baths in this style began to be built quite recently. Houses and baths built Post & Beam style can be immediately noticed due to non-standard appearance. Although if you look closely, you can find a barn or a shed built in this style almost in every village.

Post and Beam technology

Post and Beam technology in Russia is called frame-timbered, and is based on the manufacture of a frame of logs - consisting of vertical pillars, horizontal beams, species farms and other elements of logs, which are the supporting structures in a wooden house.

Subsequently, in the Post and Beam constructions according to the technology, walls are filled between log poles and beams. Exterior walls and internal partitions can be cut from a log, laid out of brick or stone, or wooden frames can be made and then warmed and sheathed with finishing materials, such as log siding (imitation of chopped log), unedged boards, shingles or shingles, and internal ones - clapboard, stick on the wall wallpaper or tile.

Post and beam technology pros

Frame-built log houses built using the Post and beam technology have more advantages. And practically have no flaws.

  • frame-timber construction is very stable and practically does not shrink;
  • a large selection of materials for the construction and finishing of the Post and beam houses;
  • the possibility of building a free-standing wooden structure, without reference to the length of the 6 log of meters, requires much less lengthy logs than in the chopped log house;
  • Due to the fact that the construction of the Post and Beam is non-shrinking, the roof can be made as complex as far as imagination is enough.

The disadvantage of a frame-and-beam construction can be filling the walls with a chopped log. The height of the pillars and beams in the Post & Beam houses during the time is not subject to shrinkage and remain unchanged, while the chopped walls will shrink.

Post and Beam Projects

The project of the house and bath Post and Beam differs from the standard design of wooden houses. Post and Beam projects contain not only the AP, but also a section in which absolutely all elements of a frame-timber structure are drawn and designed. Designers and designers, as well as loggers in the company Bear Log have sufficient qualifications and experience to design and cut down all the nodes and elements for the construction of the Post and Beam house.
