Hey guys. I have a cabin and if all goes well i will be rebuilding/ adding on. I am not at all familiar with post and beam construction. But i do know its glorious and can withstand the test of time. I am going to mill the wood myself with a chainsaw mill. Hoping to use oak for the beams, of anyone has any insight I would appreciate it.

there are several.
