The main part illustrates with stunning photos the often extraordinary architecture which characterises the farm houses of each region of France.
The third part is a set of technical appendices on techniques and restoration - lime mortars, wattle and daud ("torchis"), etc.
It will help you to recognise and understand the architectural details which are often unique to local climate and function, as you travel around France. For the more serious reader, it will help with the dating of properties through constructional details, like the size and layout of beams, and the materials used.
