If I listen carefully I should get most of it. It’s ver interesting so far. During my lunch break ill watch some more

Thanks Mads. I will give it a look. I probably won’t understand much of it. I can read written Danish fine, but the spoken language is not even understood by the majority of Norwegians. I suppose it is the same for Danes listening to Norsk. I can understand Swedish a lot better, but it’s more difficult to read, but also understandable with a little concentration. I never thought I would leave the States so I leaned a little Spanish since I thought I might visit Mexico one day. I learned to count to ten in Spanish and it only took 3 months!

Thanks for posting this Mads. I had a great time watching it although I could not understand a word until the end when they were singing the Simon and Garfunkel song, “The Boxer”, I could “understand” what he was doing. I had a big dream when I was a younger man that to build a timberframe home. I even had one designed and nearly ready to build. That dream never came true, I’m sad to say but my love for the building style remains.

The last one with Roy also has Colonial Williamsburg and Peter Ross in it, great show and makes me wish I knew Danish.

I’ve found you can learn most things over the internet, but I’ve been having a surprisingly hard time finding good information on the basics of timber framing. How to do the basic joints etc.
