Linwood Post Beam Construction
WHY BUILD USING POST & BEAM?
IN POST & BEAM CONSTRUCTION, VERTICAL POSTS SUPPORT
THE ROOF AND FLOOR BEAMS.
Connections between the posts and beams are made with metal connectors on the building site. This
is different than complete timber framing, in which the entire supporting frame of the home is built by
connecting mortise-and-tenon joints. Post & Beam construction is sometimes called “half-timbering” and
originated to create buildings capable of bearing heavy weight while greatly reducing the need for supporting
walls or posts. This allows much more flexibility in design and use of space.
STRONG, VERSATILE & COST-EFFECTIVE CONSTRUCTION
Cedar Designs/Linwood is recognized as a global expert in Post & Beam building systems. Although we
also provide home packages that use conventional truss roof systems, we specialize in contemporary Post
& Beam construction. This provides an exceptionally solid framework for homes featuring vaulted ceilings,
large expanses of windows, and bright, open living spaces. Even better, many of the costs associated with
achieving this “open-concept” effect are eliminated when using Linwood’s Post & Beam building system and

All Post & Beam Series plans on the Cedar Designs website feature premium Douglas Fir glu-lam beams as
standard, with solid timbers as an option. We have a variety of home plans available, with some
combining traditional framing methods with a single ridge beam, and others having multiple exposed
beams and posts in full Post & Beam construction.
