Hearts Of Oak: Traditional Timber Frames and Timber Conversion

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In the climate of Northern Europe keeping warm and dry during the long winters is a key priority reflected in the form and materials of our traditional buildings. Builders have always been pragmatic when sourcing materials especially within the vernacular traditions and although large parts of the British Isles have used stone and cob, timber-frame buildings have always been best response to the weather.
