Half-timbered houses, cottages and barnes are a familiar feature of the landscape, but only rarely do we have an opportunity to see below the surface and understand how they were planned and constructed.

Timber-framed buildings catch the imagination of those who work with them because of their beauty, their strength and the quality of the material of which they were made: English oak.

Many thousands of buildings of all ages still remain to remind us the strength of the tradition.

This book looks behind the commong image of 'black and white' houses, showing how timber buildings were built and how they vary from region to region.
