Comprehensive and informative,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Timber-frame Home: Design, Construction and Finishing (Hardcover)
I am researching a (possible) future project and am trying to gather information on sustainable building and living from many different sources.
The practicality and green credentials of timber construction is hard to beat. When you couple this with the natural beauty of timber and the creative imagination of designers using this material it becomes my preferred choice.
Written by an experienced American designer and builder, this book is filled with information, drawings and photographs to satisfy the most demanding reader.
I have, so far, had a quick read through but look forward to a more leisurely and detailed read over the Christmas holidays.
Heaven is - a first-class book, a glass of Merlot and a roaring log fire.
If you can't have all three - get the book - you will not be disappointed.
There are many books on this subject - try this one first.
