Oak-framed buildings are beautiful, durable and environmentally friendly.

This is a practical book on the technique of timber-frame construction for carpenters, builders and aspiring self-builders, but it will also be a source of inspiration to anyone who appreciates beautiful buildings.

Substantial revisions bring the book fully up to date and in line with current building technology.

A brief history of timber framing: Starting off; Designing frames; Structural qualities of oak; Making frames; Raising frames; The building envelope; and Finishing details.
