Three captivating stories of post and beam!
Take a peek at this impressive South Dakota lodge! With over 5,000 sq ft of living space spread across three levels, this lodge has room to sleep over 30 people comfortably. Whether you are looking for a large space to entertain the whole crew or for something smaller, get ready to be inspired by this project!
The first floor is dedicated to eating, entertaining, and relaxing. The large dining room table, open floor plan, built in bar, cozy fireplace, and game table make it walk-in ready for memory making. Two bedrooms are located on the main level, ensuring a comfortable stay for guests with difficulty using stairs. Another stunning feature: the ceilings in the open gable section reach over 30 feet tall! Vaulted ceilings are a natural benefit of working with post and beam and always make buildings feel even larger than they already are.
The second floor is where six of the eight bedrooms are located as well as a large game/lounge area. The bedrooms line the perimeter of the floor, while the bathrooms are centrally located in the middle to provide easy access to all guests. Additionally, integrated shed dormers were added for extra space in the rooms, more natural lighting, and to differentiate the roof line from the exterior view.
A staircase leads to the third level, which is a charming sitting area with 360 degree views of the surrounding South Dakota landscape.
About The Post and Beam Kit
The post and beam kit itself consists of a two-story gable and a one ½-story gable that connect together seamlessly. From this angle of the second story, notice how well these two buildings come together. Our in house CAD team develops custom plans for each kit that ensures every angle and measurement is accounted for.
Additionally, there is a lean-to, two porches, and a gable entryway added that give this sizable building exterior appeal.
