The Art of Post and Beam Construction
Clients who are drawn to post and beam buildings are often interested in the beauty of the frame. For Black Sheep Post and Beam owner, Jason Tinelle, the technique is an art form that allows him to incorporate elements from his sculpture background into every project his team creates. Tinelle sees the bold structures he builds as “good for the soul” and perfect for those who enjoy rooms with a cozy feel.
