Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays, from all of us at Legacy Post and Beam.

Gambrel Barn near Home

Legacy Post & Beam barn near Elk Point, SD

Check out what was accomplished after the first day of constructing a Legacy Post & beam kit.  One of the advantages of purchasing a kit is that the construction goes much faster.

This gambrel barn will be used as a shop area on the main level with storage, animal stalls in the lean-to, and the loft will be used for a basketball / recreation area with a 12X28 lounge room as well.

We will post more pictures as the project progresses.

The lodge should be completed by this fall and will be operational for this coming pheasant season.

When using a post & beam kit for any structure with living space, you really want to be objective with the materials you choose to use.  For example, some post & beam kit companies choose to use pine for their structural timbers.  Pine is a great, cost effective wood for siding & nominal uses, however; it's structural value is somewhat subpar.  In addition to it's structural values, pine also has a high tendency to twist, warp, and even shrink due to it's high moisture content; creating headaches for your contractor, or even issues with your structure down the road.  No one wants to see twisted posts in their beautifu…
