TRADITIONAL POST AND BEAM CONSTRUCTION
Post and beam construction using heavy timbers and traditional carpentry and joinery methods dates back to the 12th century. The craftsmen of the time used large-dimension timber frames for their strength, durability and ability to be adapted and customised to suit the needs of a variety of designs. At Traditional Timber Frames, we proudly keep that tradition alive, providing custom, handcrafted timber post and beam frame manufacturing services to the people of Australia.
Using beautiful, strong and long-lasting Australian timbers we create natural post and beam timber frames for a range of structures including homes, sheds and our famous timber-framed barns. From classically inspired country homes to stylish modern dwellings our clients choose classic traditional timber house frames to add bespoke, sustainable and truly unique architectural elements to their buildings.
WHY SHOULD YOU CHOOSE A TRADITIONAL POST AND BEAM FRAME FOR YOUR HOME?

We offer our extensive experience to help guide you through the choices in timber, style and design for your project to create a product that is truly yours.
SUSTAINABLE, SAFE, AND ECONOMICAL
A heavy timber post and beam frame made in the traditional style has an extremely low carbon footprint compared to any comparable structural system. We exclusively use sustainably sourced Australian timbers carefully selected by local forest managers with an emphasis on maintaining the health of the ecosystems they work within.
A wise person once said, “when you buy quality, you only cry once”. A quality traditional timber-framed building is the perfect structure around which to create a fantastic low energy use building saving you money for as long as you live in it. Most importantly, the beauty and craft of a finely finished hand-built timber post and beam frame adds so much value to a finished building that there’s really no reasonable reason to not include one.
