Beams

Building with beams is one of our favorite subjects. But we steer clear of using too much sheet rock and white walls with the beams. We think using as much exposed wood adds to the authenticity of the design. Using french plaster instead of sheet rock will also give the building an aged look. Building with beams from an old wooden barn or when milling your own beams from trees on your property, which is a great way to re-purpose and can be very exciting and rewarding.

I am so loving the rustic feeling of the beams. Makes me want to curl up by the fire under a throw! Thanks for sharing.
