The Timber-Frame Home: Design, Construction, Finishing, 2nd Edition

Benson, Tedd

Two decades ago, Tedd Benson helped kindle the dramatic rebirth of timber framing in this country. Today Benson and others are combining centuries-old timber-framing techniques with modern building materials to create houses that are as beautiful as they are durable and comfortable. In The Timber-Frame Home, Benson traces the history of the timber frame and tells how to create a new house in the tradition of old-world craftsmen. Today’s timber-frame house presents unique building problems. Where do you put plumbing and wiring if you don’t have stud-frame walls? How do you incorporate glass into the framing to create dramatic views? How do you insulate a timber-frame home? How do you ensure that the building meets codes? In this one-of-a-kind book, a master timber framer shares extensive experience solving these problems. This new edition brings the latest advances in timber framing to life with hundreds of full-color photos and rendered drawings — all the information you need to join the timber-frame revival.
