Ben Law, ROUNDWOOD TIMBER FRAMING
Ref: 9781856230414


Since building his famous Woodland House from his own woodland, author Ben Law has evolved his own style of natural building, now tried and tested on many other builds across England. Ben has built houses, workshops, a classroom, lean-tos, a shop and a store to industrial specifications. Whilst this style’s origins can be found in traditional forms of building, Ben has developed an entirely new vernacular using many innovative ideas and techniques.

Filled with detailed colour photographs and drawings, this unique and practical ‘how to’ book, is unquestionably a benchmark for sustainable building. Roundwood Timber Framing encourages communication between woodsmen, planners, architects and builders, and helps to close the loop between environmental conservation, use of renewable local resources and the regeneration and evolution of traditional skills, to create durable, ecological and beautiful buildings. Ben is a now a much admired figure.

His previous books have sold extremely well and this book, with its highly original and fascinating contribution to design and build, is set to capture the public’s imagination and desire to increasingly learn traditional crafts.

Paula Sunshine, WATTLE AND DAUB
Ref: CHT9346


Wattle and daub can be seen today as the infill between the timbers of timber-framed buildings throughout England. It is one of the oldest building methods in the world used, originally in the most primitive of shelters. Sticks and studs (wattles) and clay and earth (daub). Daub has been used to coat the wattle and fill gaps and keep out rain in winter and heat in the summer and has been known to last for more than 500 years. The author explains some of the mysteries surrounding this material.
