About: Today's puzzle features the windows of an old half-timbered house in a village in Germany. The term half-timbering is not not as old as the German name fachwerk or the French name colombage, but it is the standard English name for this style. Germany has several styles of timber framing, but probably the greatest number of half-timbered buildings in the world. The German fachwerkhaus usually has a foundation of stone, or sometimes brick, perhaps up to several feet (a couple of metres) high, which the timber framework is mortised into or, more rarely, supports an irregular wooden sill.
