i started another topic as i'm not sure how are the guidelines for this forum.... kept the same sub-title to relate to my other posts

i'm in my first roundwood/tmberframe project (to see some sketches (rool down to the last ones): http://www.permies.com/t/43534/timber/Ruin-structure-sketch-Roundwood-tiny)

i'm starting to read a lot of Jay C. posts in this forum (and others) about horizontal bracing in the east

it's easy to understand that installing and scribing those is much easier than oblique bracing, and it keeps more space (and easier setup) for windows....


my main problem is lack of information....all the books and building i've ever seen use oblique bracing....

is is possible (and usefull) to mix them (oblique and horizontal) in a building like in this little house

what are the risks and attentions when designing horizontal bracing?
