(Positive Pic Of the Day) PPOD #42: When Crooked is Wicked Good

If you’ve seen half timbered houses, you probably know that some of them have a tendency to lean and appear crooked. HALF-TIMBERING refers to the structure of a house with a load bearing timber frame. The timber, usually made of Oak is exposed on the interior and exterior of the house. Logs were cut in half and the flat side would be the side showing on the exterior. Hence the name half-timber. In other instances, logs were cut on all four sides so that it’s squared. The walls were filled in with plaster, bricks or wattle and daub.

Walking around town, I noticed a few half-timbered houses leaning more towards one side than the other. I thought this added to the uniqueness of these houses.

I like houses that are not perfect. They have more character. Just like people. Our imperfections make us more unique and more interesting. Today, I appreciate the imperfections of the things around me and those of my own.
