Post & Beam homes from Nu Era Cedar Homes are designed with flexibility in mind. The structural strength of your post beam construction home comes from sturdy posts positioned around the exterior shell and roof beams spanning the structure.
Featuring large open vaulted spaces, posts supporting overhead beams made of West Coast Douglas Fir, allow for the creation of walls of glass making this truly the most beautiful home building system you could ever own.
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. This system allows for expansive living spaces and high ceilings not restricted by traditional framing and load bearing walls.
Exterior siding such as 1x6 Western Red Cedar applied as vertical shiplap or smooth pattern complement the strong lines of the post and beam form. Interior walls may be finished with optional drywall, cedar available in a variety of paneling patterns, or any custom material you select. The open beam ceilings can be of 2x6 decking, 1x6 paneling, or drywall (all optional).
And, as in all our homes window and door trim is beautiful, clear kiln-dried cedar.
The Nu Era Cedar Homes Post & Beam home. A combination of materials and spaces with unlimited possibilities. The strength and drama of the post beam building system can fit any neighbourhood or habitat.
