Living with Strength & Character
Post and beam construction, also known as timber framing, is a centuries-old building technique. Solid timbers are connected by mortise and tenon joints and secured together with oak pegs. Often compared to fine furniture, the beams of these homes are fully exposed to the inside. The strength and character of a Mill Creek Post & Beam Company home is readily apparent. A welcoming, awe-inspiring sight to all who enter.
"We look to the past for inspiration, especially the rambling country homes and cottages of Europe, while at the same time using the advanced technology of today to produce a superior product. This allows Mill Creek to produce timber frames with exacting tolerances, unsurpassed strength and, most important, unparalleled beauty."
Mark Wray - Founder and principal

A standard ("stick built") 12'x16' room can require 2.5 times the energy of a timber frame construction. And this only considers the energy used for cutting and drying prior to assembly! Click here to see all the ways timber frame homes are more eco-friendly than standard homes.
