9780091450908: The Conservation of Timber Buildings

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.

About the Author:

Freddie Charles set up in practice with his wife, Mary, in 1962 and was involved with the restoration of a number of important ancient timber structures. Restoration projects included the Ancient High House in Stafford, and for the National Trust, Middle Littleton tithe barn and the reconstruction of Bredon Barn. He died in 2002.

Review:

...an 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. Architects' Journal
