"Post & Beam" Building System:

Think out of the traditional "Timber Frame" Box!

Fans of traditional Post and Beam, and Timber Frame construction will adore our Post and Beam Building System. Pan Abode's Post and Beam redefines the traditional Timber Frame by combining modern building techniques with time honored structural expression to create an elegant home that is not encumbered by the limitations of a traditional Timber Frame system. Pan Abode is the True Post and Beam building system known for efficient expansive open spaces and accentuation of structural detail, don't be fooled by imitations. A rich combination of Western Red Cedar ext. siding and trim, with full cathedral exposed Douglas Fir Beam ceilings and contemporary walls of glass that bring the outside in create an impressive open design.

The structural strength of our Post and Beam homes come from a sturdy frame of Douglas Fir glulam posts positioned under the overhead Douglas Fir glulam roof beams spanning the structure making large vaulted areas. Pan Abode's Post and Beam homes are designed with flexibility in mind. Unlike the rigid structural design of Timber Frame, the Post and Beam Building System is ideal for the manipulation of structure to arrive at a custom cedar home that is as unique as you and your needs!

The Posts and Beams are spaced 6' apart which maximizes the ratio of space to cost and provides optimum design spaces for rooms such as bathrooms and bedrooms as well as spaces for larger doors and windows. Connections are reinforced with bolted steel plates. This system allows for expansive living spaces and high ceilings not restricted by traditional framing and load bearing walls.

Exterior siding is 1x6 Western Red Cedar. Interior walls are finished with optional cedar paneling, pine paneling, drywall, or any custom material you select. The open beam ceilings can be of 2x6 Whitewood decking, 1x6 Whitewood paneling, or drywall.

The Pan Abode Post and Beam home. A combination of materials and spaces with unlimited possibilities and Timber Frame appeal.
