How can we save you money?
Our new concept using “T-REX” Connectors greatly simplifies the construction of post and beam buildings by eliminating the need to cut mortise-and-tenon joint. You will save both time and money using our method in the construction of your barn. After mounting connectors on the posts with wood screws, the horizontal and diagonal members are slotted, holes are drilled from the back side, and then solid pins are driven through the plates to make a strong, concealed connection.
Connecticut Post & Beam is a company dedicated to preserving post and beam construction with innovative, affordable alternatives. We have taken this complicated and time-consuming mortise and tenon process to a new level! You will be amazed how quickly your barn will be assembled using our unique “T-REX” Connectors along with pre-slotted, pre-drilled beams.
“T-REX” Connectors are made from 6061 structural grade aluminum.
Sizes available: 3.5″ x 3.5″ - 6″ x 6″ - 6″ x 8″ - 6″ x 10″ - 6″ x 12″

Do you miss the “Good Old Days”?
Before Henry Ford invented the automobile, we may have gotten around with a horse and buggy, but there was no electricity – no indoor plumbing. There aren’t many of us who remember that.
If we reminisce about the “Good Old Days,” there are many things that we would miss. Many of us stand in awe when we look at the heavy timbers used to build homes and barns. It was very hard work. Using only hand tools, these craftsmen created complicated joinery to assemble the barns that still stand today, many of which are over a hundred years old. We admire and respect those builders for their patience and skill. Today we see renewed interest in building the way they did back then. Unfortunately it is a very expensive way to build because it is labor intensive and requires skilled craftsmen.
However, it is now possible to build homes and barns very much like those back in the good old days without spending a fortune. Connecticut Post & Beam is using a new method of construction! Our metal connectors are mostly concealed in the beams. They are engineer-approved, less complicated and economically the best way to construct a post and beam frame.
THESE are the Good Old Days! We have automobiles, electricity and indoor plumbing – and now when Connecticut Post & Beam builds your frame you will get the look you want at a price you can afford.
