Many people are confused about what is a post frame building. Often this type of construction is only associated with pole barns and other agricultural buildings. In reality, post frame is merely an innovative framing and building method. Thus offering a broad range of advantages over typical metal or “stick-framed” structures. Perfect for one story buildings. Post frame construction methods are being used for new schools, retail space, churches, fire stations, municipal buildings, and even homes.
The practical benefits of any post frame building are many. Benefits include less material and labor, more energy efficient, sustainable materials, and unobstructed open space. Post frame buildings generally cost less per square foot to build.
For homes, post frame building techniques can offer just about any architectural features that standard home construction provides.
An attractive, eye-catching exterior combined with a beautiful and functional interior is every homeowner’s desire. A home should be built with quality materials and offer a unique setting for living while enjoying reasonable energy costs. With vaulted ceilings to provide an open feeling, post frame designs can provide that sense of volume while still affording plenty of privacy.

A post frame home can also offer a large kitchen with an unobstructed view and access to the dining and living areas. The openness allows the people in charge of cooking to be part of the socializing taking place in the adjacent spaces.
A lofty ceiling configuration allows sufficient room for an oversized exhaust fan as well as, large appliances. The floor space can be perfect for a large, well equipped center island for easier preparation and ergonomics.
Bedrooms above can also enjoy a panoramic view with an open-beam configuration that adds impressive style and spaciousness to the room. Access to the second floor can be provided by an open stairway offering a lodge-like atmosphere to the entire building.
