POST & BEAM

 

Post & Beam is another specialty of ours. It is a very versatile building method - it can be used as a main building method for a house or with combination with any other building styles. It is also an ideal way to show case large timbers in your project.

 

Central Otago

Natural Log Homes partnered with Pioneer Loghomes from Canada to work together on this large project for Central Otago. We have built this post&beam part of the project. This is a two story, 5 bay building of 250m2.
