    Post Beam Construction

    Is it necessary to butt beams over every post rather than "sandwich" ,in this case, 3-2x12's together with the butt joint in the middle creating one "single" beam span?

    Howdy the beam bears the best if the butt joints are centered over posts. How long of span an what loading are you addressing with the beam?
