Half-timbered houses, cottages and barns are a familiar feature of the landscape, but only rarely do we have an opportunity to see below the surface and understand how they were planned and constructed. This book looks behind the common image of 'black-and-white' houses, showing how timber buildings were built and how they vary from region to region. '...the best general book on (England's) timber-framed buildings. Written and beautifully illustrated by Richard Harris, the book is not just essential for those interested in the subject but, because of the detail of the drawings, is invaluable for any architect involved in repairing or moving a timber-framed building.' Architects Journal. About the author Richard Harris spent his first day as an architectural assistant surveying a medieval timber-framed building and has been fascinated by them ever since. He is Research Director at the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum, Singleton, West Sussex.
