Product description


This is Ben Law at his best - a comprehensive book, full of practical information and packed with detailed photos all underpinned by years of hard-won experience and a sound philosophy. This has to be essential reading for the growing number of woodlanders keen to immerse themselves in all that woodlands have to offer. --Mike Abbott, woodland craftsman and author

Ben's work is unique... He's a 21st century woodsman, formulating a new building style based on the timber framing methods of his British ancestors, but incorporating new techniques and the realities of the present-day world. He's created a new vernacular, one that he's passing on to future builders via hands-on workshops and books like these. --Lloyd Kahn, author of Shelter, Homework and Builders of the Pacific Coast

Ben's beautiful book shows that intelligently sourced wood is ultimately the best building material we have: the most sustainable, the most versatile and easily the most pleasant to live with. By taking past traditions of roundwood timber framing and harnessing them successfully to the rigorous demands of modern building, Ben shows that wood is one of the most vital commodities for us to build a sustainable future on this planet. --Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, TV chef, author and campaigner

About the Author

Ben Law has always had a passion for healthy, biodiverse farms and woodlands. Having gained an Advanced National Certificate in Agriculture, Ben became a shepherd and set up a conservation landscaping business, specialising in ponds and wild flower meadows. Bens appearance on Channel 4's Grand Designs is the most watched in the series history, is the hosts and publics favourite episode and was one of the 25 programmes chosen to represent Channel 4's 25th anniversary. Ben visited the Amazon in the late 1980s looking for positive solutions to deforestation and on his return set up and directed the charity, The Forest Management Foundation, working primarily with community forestry in Papua New Guinea. He has also worked for Oxfam as a permaculture consultant. Ben was a founding member of the Forest Stewardship Council and has lived and worked at Prickly Nut Woods in West Sussex, UK, since 1991; training apprentices and running courses on sustainable woodland management, eco-building and permaculture design. He runs a specialist eco-building company, The Roundwood Timber Framing Company Limited.
