MEDIEVAL EUROPEAN LOW DWELLING
A cruck or crook frame was a structural system popular in medieval Europe and especially Britain.

Multiple frames would be secured together using horizontal timbers to form the main structural support of the building.These frames would be used to hold up a roof of thatch or shingle. The gaps between the frames would be filled with wood, brick or wattle and daub.
