Roundwood Timber Framing: Building Naturally Using Local Resources, 3rd Edition (Paperback)
A new edition of the classic book on traditional timber framing
Since building his famous Woodland House from his own woodland, author Ben Law has evolved his own style of natural building, now tried and tested on many other builds across England. Ben has built houses, workshops, a classroom, lean-tos, a shop and a store to industrial specifications. Whilst this style's origins can be found in traditional forms of building, Ben has developed an entirely new vernacular using many innovative ideas and techniques.
Filled with detailed colour photographs and drawings, this unique and practical how-to book, is unquestionably a benchmark for sustainable building. Roundwood Timber Framing encourages communication between woodsmen, planners, architects and builders, and helps to close the loop between environmental conservation, use of renewable local resources and the regeneration and evolution of traditional skills, to create durable, ecological and beautiful buildings.
