This stikes me as a very British book. It is well written, has much of interest in it, particularly about self build/help groups projects, but it feels incomplete somehow. I bought the book because I was interested in the Segal method of timber framing and though much of the book is concerned with it, I found it difficult to get at any details. There are few diagrams or photographs that convey more than a general impressions. There are no solid ideas about the sizes of timbers used or what loads they would carry. Joints are covered to some extent and the general approach to building is there. You could not really plan, never mind build a house using this book. Having said that the historical stuff about self building is fascinating.
