A lavishly illustrated guide to the most elegant way to build a home.

Timberframe homes--also known as post-and-beam homes--have long set the standard for integrity and elegance, and the authors of The Timberframe Way have built some of the best.
Here in one book is a careful study of all the elements that make a timberframe home both a lifestyle and a work of art. Every construction method is covered, from prefabricated, manufactured kits to "one-off" frames hand-hewn by independent craftsmen using traditional methods. Topics include everything from checking out kits to choosing materials for the roof to transforming old barns into homes.

Attention is also given to interior elements of construction and design, as well as to products and decor that are especially suited to the rugged beauty of the timberframe home. There are chapters on outfitting the kitchen, managing traffic patterns between rooms, selecting furniture to complement the wide open spaces of the timberframe home, and even choosing lighting fixtures.

From the first inspiration to the final touches, The Timberframe Way is the complete introduction to the art of the timberframe home.
