In this authoritative volume, first published in 1984 and now reprinted by Donhead, the author looks at the various types of structure generally associated with the timber-frame tradition. He discusses repair techniques, the procedures of investigation, the preliminary survey and the structural survey, followed up by detailed case studies. The text is supported by numerous line illustrations and photographs. Architects, surveyors and craftsmen involved in the conservation of timber structures, whether it be the roof and internal framework of a medieval tithe barn or the half-timber wall of a seventeenth-century farmhouse, will find this both a beguiling and a practical reference work.

Recenzii invaluable reference and source book and a thoroughly good read, given its wealth of historical data and case study descriptions. Building Refurbishment It is rare to find a technical book that is better taken with a brandy than a pocket calculator. In its writing and its illustration, this is a book to be savoured.
