Timber framing or “Post and Beam” construction is a traditional style of building construction in which heavy timbers, unlike logs, are squared-off for more precise and air-tight joinery. Traditional joinery uses mortises and tenons and is secured with wooden pegs. There is a large variety of traditional joinery styles besides mortise and tenon. Other common joints include dovetail, tying joint, scarf joint, and lap joint.
