A Short Discussion of Tudor Style Architecture

Tudor style homes reflect long past European construction in which massive, partially exposed beams supported masonry walls.  The construction of these later homes, however, is conventional.  The “beams,” or batons, are surface mounted boards whose function is only decorative.  Aesthetics aside, such construction presents special maintenance challenges.  Opportunities for moisture intrusion through unsealed joints and wood-masonry junctures abound.  That these members are still generally restorable after upwards of a century owes much to the protection of overhangs and the durability of the old growth lumber.
