French Timber Framing

Some really good examples of French Timber Framing can be seen on Piedefer Olivier facebook page.  These are just some of the pictures from Piedefer's facebook post. It's great when we can see the  French timber framing we're studying from books. Especially the use of the principal rafter, knee braces, purlins with batten rafters. He uses a lot of old used timbers and some of the mortise and tenon in the twisted timbers are a good study on scribing. The saint andrews cross's at some of the ridges is also interesting, but then there's the timber framed gable walls as well with mortise and tenon in the twisted gable stud timbers.

If you're interested in Timber Framing  click on the link below to visit Piedefer Olivier facebook page. (I'm not sure what photos are public)
