ABSTRACT
The article discusses how immigrant people from England influenced the architectural design of houses built across New England. Typical of each housing construction was the heavy timber frame, the massive masonry chimney, and a low exposed-timber ceiling. Posts and beams were hewn from logs and connected with oak pins driven through chiseled mortise-and-tenon joints. Roofs were framed with common rafters stabilized by purlins.
