Rob Roy is perhaps best known for his writings on cordwood construction. In this new book, he describes an ad hoc approach to post and beam. Roy's experience in construction shines through in this basic introduction to practical construction. Cordwood enclosure techniques are married with timber structures in the photos and illustrations.
From back cover:
(This is) the first book to describe in depth the timber framing methods used by most contractors, farmers, and owner-builders - methods that use modern metal fasteners, special screws, and commonsense building principles to create post and beam structures in much less time.
