FRAME AND PANEL SYSTEM
Available throughout Maine and New England; Rockport Post & Beam's Frame and Panel System includes material and labor for the following:
Post & Beam Frame
The precut frame is erected on the owner's foundation and first floor deck system. Specifications and drawings for the foundation and deck are provided by Rockport Post & Beam.
Post & Beam Material
We use red oak, Douglas fir, white pine, hemlock, or recycled timbers with traditional joinery (mortise and tenons with hardwood pegs). Kiln-dry timbers are available in some of these species.
Deck on Foundation
We provide the plans for others to build. Typically, it is a light-frame constructed deck of 2" x 10" kiln-dried spruce floor joists or open-floor truss system, pressure-treated sills, sill seal, and ¾" cdx plywood subfloor or its equivalent.
Insulating stress-skin panels are installed with rough openings for windows and exterior doors. (Panels are composed of a core of rigid insulation 3 ½" or greater, bonded to 7/16" exterior-grade oriented strand board on the exterior and interior surface; ½" drywall or wood on the interior surface; R-16 to R-26 or higher.) Rough openings for windows and doors are lined with 2-bys. (Note: Other options for wall material are available upon request.)
Our custom vented roof panel system or insulating stress-skin panels with an R-factor of 38 or higher are installed with rough openings for skylights and small dormers. The interior surface of the roof system can be sheetrock or wood.
