Pioneer’s Post and Beam Homes

In addition to our traditional handcrafted full-scribe log homes, Pioneer Log Homes is proud to offer the Post & Beam style as another option for our customers. Post and Beam homes utilize a combination of vertical and horizontal beams to create a sturdy structural framework. However, unlike traditional P&B homes, we take a unique approach by cutting the slabs only where necessary, typically for framing or roof pitches, leaving the rest of the log intact to be hand-peeled. This method allows us to preserve the natural integrity of the logs, resulting in a distinctive appearance similar to our handcrafted log homes.

Each of our slabs is meticulously hand-cut by our skilled workers using chainsaws. They are then carefully brushed down to meet the desired specifications and finally sanded to achieve near-perfect flatness. Through the use of various joinery techniques, including mortise and tenon, dovetail joints, and dowels, we are able to intricately connect all the components of the house, assembling it like a massive puzzle.

Our Post and Beam homes offer a unique log look that captures the essence of rustic charm, while also providing a more cost-effective alternative to our full-scribe log homes. By incorporating the Post and Beam style, customers can enjoy the benefits of a log home at a more affordable price point without compromising on the overall aesthetic appeal.

Furthermore, it is not uncommon for us to create hybrid homes that combine elements of both full-scribe and Post & Beam construction. This hybrid approach allows for even more design flexibility and can result in a truly remarkable structure. For instance, a hybrid home might feature a predominantly Post & Beam structure while incorporating several full-scribe logs strategically placed to enhance its character and visual impact.

Whether you choose our traditional full-scribe log home, the distinctive Post & Beam style, or a hybrid combination of both, Pioneer Log Homes is dedicated to delivering exceptional craftsmanship and creating homes that embody the warmth, beauty, and durability of log construction. Our team of experienced professionals is committed to working closely with you to bring your vision to life.
