Post Frame Buildings

Have the quality building you want, in less time, for less money.

Post-frame buildings are wood-framed buildings. They feature large, solid-sawn posts or laminated columns instead of wood studs, steel framing or concrete masonry. However, studs, steel and masonry may be incorporated into post-frame structures to make unique “hybrid” buildings.

Post-frame buildings may utilize trusses, rafters, or laminated lumber to support roof loads, which may be affixed to each post or supported by a header. Horizontally-placed dimension lumber - roof purlins and wall girts – hold the posts and trusses or rafters together to form the basic frame. Exterior sheathing - commonly steel, OSB or plywood - provide lateral load resistance, creating a unique building diaphragm that makes the light wood frame comparable in strength to steel and concrete structures.

Post-frame structures are much more quickly erected than other kinds of buildings. Because the larger posts and the interlocking frame can handle greater loads than stud-wall construction, less structural materials are needed – which saves on material and installation costs. Pre-assembled roof trusses are often used and secured to the frame. The significant savings in construction time and materials means you can have the quality building you want, in less time, for less money.

The savings don’t end with the construction process itself. The natural insulating properties of a wood structure are superior to those of steel or masonry. Also, because posts are spaced farther apart than studs, there are fewer interruptions in insulating materials. Post-frame buildings feature an exceptionally large wall cavity for ample insulation, which allows for lowered heating and cooling costs throughout the year. Contact us for more information and let Mountain View Construction help with your next construction or remodeling project.
