Many people see the terms academic help “post and beam” or “timber frame” as synonymous with log home living. Nothing could be further from the truth. Log homes tend to be more rustic with a sometimes overwhelming amount of wood exposed on the interior. Post and beam homes expose the timber structure in the interior while still allowing for the warmth of painted or plastered walls. The pictures that follow will clear up that misunderstanding in a hurry. There are as many different architectural styles built in the post and beam tradition as there are in the regular, or stick-built, form.
