Timberframe: The Art and Craft of the Post-And-Beam Home
Synopses & Reviews
Timberframe shows that time-honored timber construction has unlimited design possibilities. Written by Tedd Benson, who is nationally known as the leader in timberframe design and construction, this vividly photographed book explores a variety of styles, from traditional homes to contemporary classics.
Book News Annotation:
Bensen's New Hampshire-based company has built over 500 timberframe houses since 1974. He describes examples and illustrates them in drawings, plans, and large color photographs. The arrangement is by landscape: in the country, on the water, and in the mountains. He does not provide an index.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
