Post & Beam Design Build
Look to Ken Walker Construction if you are looking for a custom post and beam home in Germantown, MD, or beyond. Ken Walker is a custom home builder; not to mention, an authorized distributor of Hearthstone log and timber products and services. Custom post and beam design is our specialty in today’s new home market. Our design services will help you envision the open-space potential of a post and beam home. Our timberwright services will help you realize that dream.
In our timberframe homes, timber posts and beams are the wall structure on which we set the timber rafters and beams that make the roof system. These structural components are assembled with mortise and tenon pegged joinery on the deck of the house. Then the structural elements are stood up one by one, much as an old Amish barn would be raised. The end of this process is a traditional, timberwright-crafted home.
Timberframe homes can be designed as a hybrid system, - a blending of post and beam, log, and conventional framing. The blending of these design systems can be made to suit the taste of the individual homeowner.
