Don't know if anyone could answer this question,but I will ask anyway.
I have a book called " Home Building and Woodworking In Colonial America " Is an interesting book. I have always been interested in the subject and have always wanted to learn more.
I have gone to the internet and have seen alot of books on the subject. If you were going to pick 2 books to buy on the subject of Timber Framing from a novice stand point. What 2 books would you suggest ?I figured there might be someone lurking on this board who has the knowledge of timber framing from historic to modern.Who might could answer this question.
I will say thank you.

The Wilbur book that you have is one of the best. If you're interested in French vernacular architecture find a copy of A Creole Lexicon by Edwards & Kariouk or Building A House In New France by Peter Moogk.

Hey,
Thanks for info. The Wilbur book is excellent,and I have read it more than a few times. Have found the Creole or French Styles of interest,but wouldn't fit into the area that I live in. Would love to learn how to build a small story and a half with loft: in a colonial style. Finding tools to actually learn the process.....
Well that is a different story in itself. Thank You for the information
