Timber Frame Construction

Timber Frame ConstructionAll About Post and Beam Building

By Jack Sobon and Roger Schroeder

Garden Way Publishing – 1984

Jack and Roger created a book which introduces the practice of timber framing in simple terms so the novice can attempt a small building using the techniques described in this well written and drawing filled volume.  “With all the basics learned, you’re ready for work.  And it’s here that the authors help you as no other book will.  They construct with you a 12 x 16 foot garden tool shed and tell you how to change that size or that purpose.  Not surprising, the authors guide you first in building a stone foundation, then carefully tell how to prepare every timber for this building.”
