Welcome to Maine Mountain Post & Beam

 
Maine Mountain Post & Beam is a timber frame company located in Fryeburg, Maine. (We work nationwide.) For over 20 years we have specialized in the dismantle, restoration, and re-assembly of antique timber frame buildings for both homes and barns. 

We also design, cut & erect new timber frames using traditional joinery, methods, and techniques (pegged mortise & tenon joinery, no metal fasteners). 

Current Project

Current project: Mosher Barn, Gorham »

Circa 1820.  This 40’x80' barn is the last of four Mosher barns at Mosher Corner in Gorham, Maine.  The frame will be re-assembled (after dismantle, cleaning and repair) at the Shaw Brothers Family Foundation Farm in the spring of 2022.   The classic gable entry barn utilizes the English Tying joint with full 40’ ties and full 80’ plates!   The common rafter system utilizes a braced king post truss at each bent that supports a structural ridge.  This is a wonderful example of a early Yankee Barn that will be preserved for centuries to come.
