This post and beam, timberframed cabin was built by the homeowners without the use of power tools using lumber logged off their own property. The addition to this original structure was built using more modern construction methods, but is still post and beam. With its beautiful south-facing views and many sustainable features, this home on the edge of the woods in Berkshire is well worth seeing.
