Roundwood Timber Framing - Building Naturally Using Local Resources (Book)

Roundwood Timber Framing - Building Naturally Using Local Resources (Book)

Product Review (submitted on 8 November 2012):
He starts with how to choose appropriate trees to fell, explains how to lay the padstone foundations, describes the process of roundwood framing, and the jointing and pegging techniques (which differ from green-oak framing). Then comes the construction of floors, roofs and walls using natural materials like waney edge boards, cob and straw bales; and finally there are examples of seven very different buildings.
