About the Author
Rupert Newman has been actively involved in carpentry since the age of 12. He has a degree in Naval Architecture and has worked as a shipwright, but soon realized that building roofs and other large structures was his true passion. He is now the owner of a well-respected company employing a number of highly skilled craftsmen and apprentices, building modern structures with green oak in the traditional way. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

For those thinking of having an oak framed house built for them - here you will find inspiration and plenty of information; from choosing a site, the design process, getting planning through and the history of oak building in the UK.
Beautifully written and illistrated - a must have book on the subject.
Mark North Notts
It doesn't dwell on history or required craftsmanship, nor specific construction details or calculations for structure.
A must have for anyone seeking a book covering the full range topics for the modern timber framer.
