View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

The charm and character of the period timber-framed building make it one of the best-loved styles of our traditional architectural heritage. It is the dream of many to own such a home, be it a magnificent house set in its own grounds or a small cottage with roses around the front door. Unfortunately, the importance of structural details, the perils of dampness and rot and the resultant defects, are often not fully appreciated. It is essential in restoring or modifying a timber-framed building that the principles of the structure are understood. This book is intended for owners, would-be owners and anyone interested in the construction, common defects and restoration of period timber-framed buildings. It is divided into two main parts, the first of which examines the anatomy and details of this building type, while the second deals with the cause and effect of structural faults and methods of restoration. Planning, technical matters and local authority grants are also covered.
