If you have only dreamed about the beauty of building with timbers, this book will open your eyes. It will convince you that this method is not only practical today for homes and other buildings, but often is less expensive than “stick building.”

  • The basics of timber framing.
  • How to design for strength and beauty.
  • How to combine modern tools and time-tested methods.
  • A starter project: How to build a 12 x 16 garden toolshed.
  • Dozens of illustrations and photos that make it all easy to understand.
