It is very difficult and expensive to install large wood beams in your home or building. I am not talking about 8" x 10" beams here - I am talking about 24" x 24"monsters. Volterra will construct your beams at any size you desire - and building a 24" x 24" faux wood beam is very inexpensive for us to do. A real wood beam that is 2 foot by 2 foot by 30 feet would weigh 5760 pounds and our fake wood beam would weigh 99 pounds - that is a huge difference. The cost to install a 5+ thousand pound beam is extremely high and our 99 pound faux wood beam..... well you do the math.
