These tiny wood cabins were built with care by master builders. The main visual difference between timber frame wood or post and beam log cabins is the exposed squared (or rounded) timber logs. This gives a wood cabin a rustic look. Timber-framed wood cabins are a traditional type of construction. This can be traced to hundreds of years ago. They are beautiful, strong, and last for a long time. Some timber frame cabins date back to the Middle Ages in Europe. These cabins are still standing. True timber frame cabins are built with tight fitting joinery, and strong wood is used for construction.
Building a cabin with post and beams is a reliable, old-fashioned and traditional way to construct a home. Timber-framed log cabins look similar to post and beam houses. Post and rail construction however uses mechanical fasteners, often metal plate connectors, to join adjacent members. These connectors are used in post beam cabins and can be hidden, or left exposed. Post and beam wood cabins require highly skilled carpenters. Fitting log beams correctly is important for weather resistance and warmth in the cabin.
