Timber frame restoration

Willow rod

Split willow rods for wattle in timber-frame infills. The traditional clay infill techniques are used for historical building conservation and restoration. These are often not only more practical than masonry but also a lot of fun. The original way of working is creative and satisfying; the naked timber frame slowly becomes a house. The semi-circular cross-section makes the rods flexible and elastic.
