I just learned of a website that might be of interest to people here: www.archipedianewengland.org
From their home page:
Archipedia New England (ANE) is a collaborative online encyclopedia of New England’s historic architecture compiled directly by craftsmen, architectural historians, architects and other building specialists from their own field observations of buildings which they have inspected, repaired or restored. ANE records techniques of installation and properties of historic building materials, especially those from the pre-industrial era for which few or no written descriptions survive. These materials embody empirical knowledge developed over centuries of trial-and-error by thousands of craftsmen who once transmitted their knowledge orally to apprentices.
Traditional framing and building practices, using wood, stone, straw, clay.
