3 Reasons We Love Steel Plate Joinery!

The art of post and beam has been around for hundreds of years. Like all forms of construction, advancements have been made throughout that time that benefit current day customers.

One of those advancements is the use of steel plate joinery. As the name leads to, ‘joinery’ is the structural element that connects (or joins) two pieces of wood. Traditional timber frame buildings used mortise and tenon joinery, which is undoubtedly breathtaking, but also adds significant complexity in the building process.

Below are a few of the top reasons steel plate joinery comes standard in all Legacy kits.

1. The bold look of the steel plates against solid Douglas fir timbers create a rustic look with an industrial flair

2. The enhanced structural support the steel plates provide increases the distance the post and beam trusses can span.

3. The use of steel plates, instead of the more time consuming and traditional mortise and tenon joinery, makes it significantly more affordable for the average customer.
