Norwegian Timber and the Scottish Great House

Norwegian Timber and the Scottish Great House This paper investigates how the Norwegian timber trade may have provided building materials for the construction and modification of some of Scotland's great houses with particular reference to Panmure House (1666–1685). It will attempt to determine to what extent, if any, a seventeenth century example of a ‘ready to assemble’ model existed, able to provide pre-shaped/worked structural timbers to Scottish builders. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Architectural Heritage Edinburgh University Press

Abstract

This paper investigates how the Norwegian timber trade may have provided building materials for the construction and modification of some of Scotland's great houses with particular reference to Panmure House (1666–1685). It will attempt to determine to what extent, if any, a seventeenth century example of a ‘ready to assemble’ model existed, able to provide pre-shaped/worked structural timbers to Scottish builders.
