Les constructions de English Heritage Buildings sont tellement belles qu'il est impossible de ne pas les remarquer. Elles relient le passé au présent, la plus noble tradition à la conception moderne des lieux où l'homme d'aujourd'hui habite, travaille et se délasse. Dépendances en chêne présente une série de ces réalisations. Ivo Pauwels, l'auteur, raconte dans son style palpitant habituel, l'histoire de ces constructions et ramène à la surface la connaissance des charpentes, des toits de tuiles ou de chaume, du mélèze et du chêne, profondément ancrée dans les matériaux. Vous imaginerez sans difficulté les premiers charpentiers à l'œuvre. Le grand photographe Jan Verlinde a pu prendre la plupart des photos sur le continent. Il a néanmoins puisé aussi son inspiration en Angleterre.

This is the first book to tackle all the issues relating to timber decay. It presents the facts and explores timber decay problems through case studies. These are illustrated with clear self-explanatory photographs for the reader to use as a diagnostic aid. Section 1 discusses timber as a living material, Section 2 deals with decay organisms and their habitat requirements. Section 3 moves on to the building as an environment for timber and discusses the ways in which wood responds to moisture change. Section 4 ends with an approach to timber decay which integrates knowledge on the decay organism, its requirements and natural predators with appropriate and targeted chemical treatments.
