A Crockett Post & Beam home has the look of timber frame construction, with the design versatility of hidden metal braces and supports that help keep labor and material costs down.
Crockett’s high-quality post & beam homes are made with New England slow-growth eastern white pine. All timbers, including posts, beams, joists, rafters and braces are field cut with lag screw connectors — with wooden pegs on exposed surfaces to hide the metalwork.
Not only will you get a timber frame look with our post and beam homes, but you’ll also get the benefits of building a home with the latest Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs). R-24.3 wall and R-38 roof panels will save you a bundle in energy costs.
Crockett, for over twenty years, has only used AFM R-Control structural insulated panel (SIP) wall & roof panels. R-Control SIP’s have been extensively tested by nationally recognized laboratories and have been proven to meet or exceed all structural and fire code regulations.
R-Control SIP’s are heavyweights against the destructive agents of mold, mildew, and termites. The EPS foam is treated with Perform Guard termite protection. The entire SIP is treated with FrameGuard which prevents mold, mildew, and termite damage to its wood components. SIP’s provide superior insulation with its high R values. The solid construction of SIP’s block wind & moisture, providing optimum comfort for temperature, noise and dust control. Heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems can be downsized with R-Control SIP’s, creating significant energy savings.
