Welcome to American Post and Beam® – Your Resource for Designing and Building a Barn Style Home, Classic Post and Beam Home or Stylish Carriage House.
American Post & Beam® is a national custom post and beam design, manufacturing and building company. Our team is experienced in designing post and beam barns, barn homes, farmhouses, waterfront cottages, and mountain-style homes. Our homes are energy-efficient and have a special aesthetic character that you won’t easily find elsewhere. Be sure to take a look at the post and beam home floor plans and carriage house plans.
An American Post & Beam® home is a legacy that will be cherished by generations. Each home is custom designed to meet the needs of the individual client. Customers work closely with a project manager and our
in-house design department to oversee every detail of crafting the project. Interactive meetings with our designers allow you to watch right on your home computer as a designer manipulates your floor plans while you discuss your ideas and needs with them in real time. After all, our designers may have many years of timber frame design experience, but the client is the one who will live in the barn house, or make use of the barn or carriage house. Together, our talented designers are able to work with clients to craft a floor plan that perfectly suits the needs of the homeowner.
And while every client is able to work with our design team in a similar and proven method, we recognize that all American Post & Beam® homes are very different. Our designers have experience designing many different styles of homes and barns; from classic barn homes and farmhouses, to lake houses, cottages and ski homes to modern and contemporary style homes. Visit the post and beam home photo gallery to see examples.
Our shop in Claremont, New Hampshire includes a team of artisans who craft every American Post & Beam® home “Package” with the spirit of true American craftsmanship and pride. The Shell Package components are bundled and shipped to a client’s building site. American Post & Beam® uses select structural Douglas fir timbers, which are SFI certified (Sustainable Forestry Initiative) and pre-cut to allow for fast on-site construction. Windows are pre-installed in the wall panels at the American Post & Beam® facility, which allows for a superior fit and seal to prevent heat loss.
