A Post & Beam Barn can be described as a barn that's built using heavy wooden timbers, joint together with ether carved wood joinery (such as pegged mortise & tenon) or metal heavy duty plates & hardware, forming an exposed structural frame.
In most Post & Beam Barns, the whole frame, including posts, girts, headers, loft joists and even rafters are build with different sizes of heavy wooden beams.
Original hand hewn beams contain a wide range of variance in the amount of notches, mortise holes, peg holes, nail holes, color variation, etc.
