Over 200 striking color photos and more than 100 line drawings introduce the reader to the advantages of merging traditional timber frame construction with modern, conventional building materials to create stunning hybrid homes for the twenty-first century. These homes blend the beauty of wood and the comfort of conventional building materials. \nThe engaging text provides a detailed history of timber frame construction, details the range of choices available in timber frame hybrid construction, and provides a sweeping photographic essay of fifty building projects representing a wide range of approaches to configurations, styles, surfaces, finishes, and budgets.
