Editorial Reviews

Roger Parker
This book is a visual gallery of timber-frame designs from all over North America, collected by Tedd Benson. With over 400 color photographs, line drawings and floor plans of timber-frame homes in a wide range of styles, this book is a rich source of ideas for architects, builders and those contemplating building a home in this traditional style of construction.

When I chose timberframe construction for the kitchen-family room wing of my new house, there was only one candidate to engineer, fabricate, and install the frame: Tedd Benson. He is a master of his craft.
Fine Gardening
Library Journal
Benson is a master of the timberframe craft, in which large structural timbers are left exposed and thus enhance the decoration of a building. His third book on the topic is another classic in its own right. Benson runs a timber framing business from a hamlet in New Hampshire and is regularly featured on PBS, particularly This Old House. His craft is evident here, but his new book presents his art as well--it is full of magnificent ideas and examples of thoughtful execution. Benson delineates two dozen projects of various sizes and styles. With 400 full-color photographs and dozens of line drawings, images are more prominent than text. The effect is nearly overwhelming, but it is leavened by an introduction from Norm Abram, the master carpenter of This Old House and New Yankee Workshop. Essential for woodworking collections. This may even find a place in art collections. Index and epilogs not seen.--Alexander Hartmann, Bloomsburg Univ. Lib., PA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
