I was looking up various examples of post & beam construction a few days ago and found some really good videos. I’m not sure, but I think I may have become somewhat obsessed with insulation and cabin ideas over the past two months. I know that’s not healthy for me because the whole idea behind moving up here was to get away from being “on” all the time. Now, being on is all I can think about.
I’m just going to post a few videos here. I think they’re really good. If you don’t watch any more than one, be sure to watch the first one. It’s a crazy cool house made from Cypress trees. I’ve never seen anything like it. The other videos have to do with what it takes to make the posts and beams and how these types of structures are put together. Enjoy.
