We have been following the Tiny House Blog for years, always anxious to see what our friends and neighbors are up to. The Small Home movement is in full swing and we believe post and beam framing has not been addressed often enough as one of the choices available.
We have a unique “T-Rex” Connector to be used strictly with post and beam framing, offering an alternative to the many small home advocates out there. Our exclusively-designed post and beam connectors are extruded from 6061 structural grade aluminum, which is used in everything from ship building to skyscrapers; in addition, our “T-Rex” Connectors are engineer-approved.
For the DIY individual, we have extensive plans and connectors available; you can either use milled lumber from your own land or purchase economically from a local sawmill.
For one who doesn’t have the time required for a DIY project, you can purchase the kit with everything needed to construct a post and beam frame, using the pre-slotted and pre-drilled white pine. Windows, roofing material, doors, and siding can be added to any order.
For someone who can’t wait, we can add a covered porch and construct your post and beam home for you in the New England area.
Take a look at our website at www.ctpostandbeam.com to see what post and beam framing can offer you! We are willing to work closely with anyone from the Tiny House community.
