This book can’t be praised enough! Roberts was a master builder; he takes the reader step by step through considering the intelligent design and construction of wooden houses. Roberts reconsiders materials, design principles and popular building styles that aren’t really sensible. Sadly, contemporary building codes prohibit much of what Roberts suggests. Still, it is highly valuable, particularly in places where one may freely design and build their own house largely out of wood. The file size is large because of numerous hand-done drawings and plans.
