Publisher's Description

The classic timber-framed house is attractive, affordable, and easily expanded to meet the needs of a growing family. With the step-by-step instructions in this book you can build your own timber-framed house -- one that features a level of craftsmanship rare in modern construction. Following the traditional "hall-and-parlor" home design, architect and builder Jack Sobon carefully and clearly explains how to find the ideal building site; create a master plan; select the best tree species; hew and mill timbers; assemble the frame; install wall sheathing, windows, and doors; design and finish the interior; and expand on the plan. The basic design is easly adapted to meet different needs.

One of the best-known and most distinctive figures in the timber-framing revival, Jack Sobon knows how to make home building affordable by using economical hand tools, taking control of the processing of building materials, and using inexpensive local supplies. His practice advice includes the latest knowledge on building a healthy house, integrating natural systems into the design, and finding effective home heating solutions.
