Timber Framing - Americas


Most "haft-timbered" houses existing in Missouri, Pennsylvania (ethnically, the Amish are German) and Texas were built by German settlers. Many are still present in Colonia Tovar, (Venezuela), Santa Catarina, and Rio Grande do Sul,(Brazil), where Germans settled. Later, they chose more suitable building materials for local conditions (most likely because of the great problem of tropical termites.)

Famous quotes containing the word americas:

    The only history is a mere question of one’s struggle inside oneself. But that is the joy of it. One need neither discover Americas nor conquer nations, and yet one has as great a work as Columbus or Alexander, to do.
