Post-Frame Residential: H&D Quality Builders

by Rocky Landsverk

This building was built to serve as the retirement home for a husband and wife. They sold their home in town and moved out to the countryside with this home, looking for some seclusion and privacy. The footprint includes a space for a woodshop in conjunction with the garage space, with office space in the attic trusses above the garage. A porch on the side of the home was built to serve as the segue into the outdoor patio/fire pit area they are planning to build.

To frame the exterior walls of the home, posts were set on top of the Perma-Columns, then a Rapid Framing System was used. This framing system is a panelized girt system that incorporates all window and door openings in the panels from the plant. The time spent on site framing these openings was significantly reduced.
