Timber Framed Buildings Explained

Product Description

The complete guide to recognising and understanding timber-framed buildings. Using his own drawings, diagrams and photographs, Trevor Yorke takes the reader through the story of these buildings from 1200 to the present day.

From a distance the contorted structure of a timber framed building, with bowing beams and leaning posts, can create an impression, that it has been ravaged by centuries of wear and tear. However, they represent the earliest style of home still habitable, and the quality of this construction and beauty of this decoration have allowed many of them to survive the centuries since they were build and remain a joy for today's generation.

The first section of the book explains the background and basic principles of these black and white buildings - how they rose to prominence, were altered over time to suit different tastes and pockets. Examples of buildings standing today are used.

The second section explains how the timber was produced, the parts assembled and the finished structure protected from the elements. Trevor Yorke has used a wide range of diagrams, illustrations and photographs to enhance a rich and authoritative text.
