Characteristics of Tudor houses

How to spot a real Tudor house.

Tudor houses are made from a wooden framework of beams.

The timber beams on Tudor houses are uneven because they were cut by hand rather than by machine.


Can you see any clues to help you tell when this house was built?

The wooden beams can be seen on the outside of Tudor houses.
