      I have read, and found these two books very helpful: Build a Classic Timber Frame House (TFH) by Jack Sobon and Timber Frame Construction: All About Post and Beam Building (TFC) by Jack Sobon and Roger Schroeder. Both cover roughly the same material, including selecting timbers, how to make them yourself - including the old-fashioned way using just a couple of axes, layout and basic joinery.   Building the geography of your world is, for many, one of the most enjoyable parts of world building. Having skills in map making helps but, in reality, maps look so much better when they make sense.

      Some cruck-framed buildings have been restored for further use as museums. If you want to visit an authentic example of a restored cruck-framed cottage the Glencoe Folk Museum is excellent. Others include Auchindrain Township Museum in Argyll, while the Highland Folk Museum in Newtonmore boasts several reconstructed examples.
