Our Process


The process of buying a

Legacy Post & Beam kit
includes the following four key steps.

Step 1: Idea

It all starts with an idea! Whether it’s a sketch on a napkin, a concept found online, or blueprints you have in hand, our team is here to help turn your ideas and dreams into a reality.

The initial discussions with your Legacy Post & Beam representative will start with mapping out your ideas, budget, and time frame. From there, we can outline the kit that meets your needs and get started on the ordering process.

Step 2: Design

Let the fun begin! Now that you’ve worked with your Legacy Post & Beam representative on the basics of your kit, we are ready to make it official and get started on the specifics. A 20% down payment is due at this time, which allows us to get started on CAD drawings.

You will work closely with your Legacy Post & Beam Project Manager over the next few weeks to months (depending on the number of revisions needed). Then, when everything is finalized, a 50% payment is due and the production phase begins.

Step 3: Handcraft

The artisan craftsmanship is underway! During this phase, our timber frame experts begin handcrafting your kit in our production facility. Doing this inside a controlled environment with specialized equipment allows an increased level of accuracy and precision.

Step 4: Deliver

Headed for home! The materials of your kit will be packaged on a semi-truck and delivered to your job site. During this phase, you’ll work with your Production Manager to schedule a delivery date that works well for you and your builder. When the kit is delivered, the remaining 30% payment is due.

Step 5: Support

See the bents soar! During the construction phase, you will get to watch your kit transform from packaged bents into a beautiful building. Our team will be available to support you and your builder throughout the construction process.

Payment Policy

A 20% deposit is required when placing an order for all post and beam kits. Payment can be made by check or wire transfer.

A signed order form and 20% deposit locks in your pricing for 12 months. You have a full 60 days to cancel your order by submitting a written request. Your 20% deposit will be refunded minus any costs incurred by Legacy Post & Beam™ (such as CAD drawings, project management hours, engineering, etc…)

Upon receipt of your signed order form and the initial payment, we work with you to customize, personalize, and fine tune your plan by both email and phone until they are complete. Once we finalize the details, the plan is ready for the “engineer’s wet stamp” (if required) and presentation to the county for permits.

Once your CAD drawings are finalized, a 50% progress payment is required to start. Once payment is received, we will start the manufacturing and production process. This is also where we look ahead to schedule a delivery date.

The final 30% payment is due on delivery.
