Timber Frame Books by Tedd Benson:
Our Featured Timber Frame Book:
In 1980 Tedd Benson wrote a similar book called Building the Timber Frame House which is still one of the most comprehensive manual available today. It mentions timber framing techniques such as different kinds of joinery, assembly of timbers and the raising of timber frames. The updated version Timber Frame Home Design Construction Finishing is able to allow readers to trace back the timber frame’s history while introducing ideas and techniques in creating structures with the use of old-world craftsmen. The said methods have integrated centuries-old timber framing with today’s modern materials which results into a durable, comfortable and sustainable building.
