Suzanne T. reviewed The Timber-Frame Home, Design, Construction, Finishing on
From the dust cover: "If you're thinking of building a home (or are just interested in home design), consider the timber frame. In this book, Benson takes you step by step through timber-frame strategy, engineering, design and frame and floor plans - so you'll be able to understand the fundamentals of timber framing and the design and structural options available to you. Most important, you'll learn how the timber-frame home can be designed to accommodate 20th-centruy needs and conveniences, as Benson details wiring, plumbing, state-of-the-are insulation and passive-solar technology. With 97 inspiring color photographs and 140 technical drawings, Benson's book shows you how to join the timber-frame revival."
