The technique for building a timber frame for a house, barn or shed is called “timber framing” and you can search Google using these key words:

timber frame construction

You will find a lot of information.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timber_framing
http://www.timberlast.com/about_timber_framing_techniques.cfm

Then go to http://www.amazon.com and search using these terms:

timber frame

You’ll find a big selection of books. (pick the ones you like and go to ebay and search for them… or look at the used listings on Amazon.)
