A post and beam structure will give the look and feel of a timber structure in a much shorter time frame, as bolts are used instead of wood joinery. This carport in Castlegar provides a great covered parking area as well as adding character to the house.

After the timbers were cut and coated in the shop, the structure was put up quickly. The owner chose metal sheet roofing with snow stop strips to prevent the snow from sliding off.

While erecting a frame, often finger marks will dirty the timbers. So any marks are wiped off and the final coat of wood finish is done on site to ensure that the frame looks amazing.
