I just discovered this website.  These guys are building some really nice barns in Vermont.  They are post-and-beam but framed mostly with dimensional lumber.  The coolest thing is their buttressed floor beams that allow them to have a clear span inside.  They also use diagonal framing for racking strength.  Check it out!



Beautiful buildings! However, framing with all those heavy beams and those diagonal studs (maybe they're called "zuds") would surely be an adventure. I would probably pull out what hair I have left by the time I was able to layout those bad boys.
