Who we are

Brooks Post & Beam has been designing and building energy-efficient timber frame homes and barns for over 40 years.

Along the way, we’ve set industry standards with our panel, wiring and plumbing details. Brooks also developed the first computer-controlled timber cutting machine in the world, which allows us to move seamlessly from timber frame model to the shop floor.

This helped us increase our productivity and let our craftsmen focus on detailing the timbers. Take some time to see what Brooks Post & Beam has to offer, and welcome to our community of customers, friends, family, vendors and tradespeople.
