Post & Beam Barns

Post and beam is a style of construction that uses heavy timbers instead of traditional dimensional lumber. This type of custom barn building uses fewer, larger all-wood posts and beams than traditional stick built construction. The frame of the structure is held together using wooden joinery and/or steel gusset plates. Using larger timbers allows us to use fewer of them in order to create dramatic open spaces.

This style of barn can be erected extremely quickly, just one of the many benefits of choosing a post and beam structure. Post and beam barns have no load-bearing walls and are extremely functional, giving you the ability to customize your structure when placing windows, doors, and horse stalls. Check out our extensive project gallery to view some of the most exquisite post and beam barns and homes in the country from DC Builders.

As you can see from our always-expanding portfolio, DC Builders has ample experience in the design and construction of custom post and beam barns nationwide. Our accomplished crews have traveled the country from Washington, Oregon, and California to North Carolina, Maine, and Tennessee. Our in-house design team and experienced project managers work together under one roof to customize your experience from the creation of the initial design concept to the day we hand you the keys.
