 The Mechanical Benefits of Post and Beam Frames


Mechanically speaking, the beams transfer the weight of the roof to the tops of the posts. The posts then bear the weight straight down to the ground. The Advantage: post and beam frames nullify the need for interior walls bearing the weight of the roof. Thus, walls are not an integral part of the weight bearing structure and don’t need to be used as often. This allows for a more open floor plan. Post and Beam Frames
