Country Cape (T4753) - Eastham, MA
Nothing says “American” like a farmhouse. A farmhouse is not really a “home style” but is truly defined by it’s location and purpose. A farmhouse is the main house located on a farm where the workers or the owners of the farm live. However, most people have an image in their mind when they hear farmhouse.
Depending on the region, 'farmhouse style' or architecture, has many characteristics associated with it. Farmhouses were designed and built using materials native to their region. The one thing they do usually have in common is their simple, unfussy design, which is why American Post & Beam® is the perfect choice when it comes to designing and building your farmhouse. Our post and beam frames have simple, clean lines, creating open and bright living spaces.

AMERICAN MODERN™ – CONTEMPORARY HOMES BY AMERICAN POST & BEAM
We’ve always gotten lots of interest from people wanting a home a little more modern and contemporary than we’ve traditionally designed. In fact, that was the idea behind the TIMBERPEG® (our sister brand) home shown below. Lately, we’re getting even more interest in something that pushes the envelope a bit more. We’re still in the initial stages but our designers are currently working on some new design concepts. American Modern combines the open, airy, clean feel of a modern, contemporary style home with the beauty and craftsmanship associated with American tradition. American Modern Homes are simple, attractive, energy efficient and new.
