rooks Post & Beam has been designing and building timber frame homes and barns since 1967. In the beginning Phil Brooks started the company dismantling and recovering old New England timber frame barns but the demand for frames quickly exceeded the supply of these traditional heavy timber structures. Before long our focus was on new energy efficient "green" buildings. We have been building green for over 40 years now. In the early days Phil helped develop and evolve the stresskin panel that makes our homes incredibly energy efiicient. Many of our early panel, wiring and plumbing details have been accepted as industry standards, others have copied our spline joinery recognizing its strenth and efficient use of materials. Our biggest success has been the development of the first computer controlled timber cutting machine in the world! Our seamless integration of timber frame model to shop floor increases our productivity and allows our craftsmen to focus on the detailing of the timbers.
We are a small company limiting ourselves to just 12-18 projects per year in an effort to maintain a sustainable business, control quality and maintain a more personal relationship with our clients. Our average employee has over 15 years experience in timber framing, this deep experience brings both efficiency and quality to our work, giving you the highest value for your dollar. Please take a few minutes to discover who we are and how we have quietly led the timber frame industry for over forty years. If you are looking for personal service, quality, and affordability keep reading! Thank you.

"We're not just timber framers, we offer support services such as architectural design and engineering and the selection and management of
subcontractors involved in your timber frame project from start to finish."
Paul Freeman, President
Owners: Over the years we have helped hundreds of families navigate their way through the complex process of design, permitting, contractor selection and construction managment of their new home. It is crucial that you work with someone who can communicate with you, convert your ideas into plans, and your plans into a realistic finished timber frame project that fits your budget. We can do that!
Builders: Over the years we have built many homes for research and development in order to try out new methods and materials. With these and hundreds of other successful projects, we understand the challenges of working on site, dealing with weather, last minute changes, demanding schedules, and the coordination of multiple subs. We have introduced hundreds of builders to timber frame construction, many who have subsequently built one of our homes for themselves and their families.
Efficiency: We employ a unique blend of technology and old-world craftsmanship. Seamless integration of computer frame models and shop equipment lightens heavy work and frees up our craftsmen where it matters most, custom fitting traditional mortise and tenon joinery and hardwood spline connections by hand.
Green Design: The design and construction of attractive, energy efficient buildings is a core value of the timber framing community and a primary goal of Brooks Post & Beam. Sustainable construction is not new to us; we've been building affordable, energy efficient, Post and Beam structures for decades.
