Build a Tudor House

Tudor houses were mainly made of wood and are sometimes called 'half timber' houses because they were timber frames filled in with wattle and daub (a mix of interwoven branches, the wattle, and mud, the daub), mortar, brick or some other fill.

To extend a Tudor House you just added more frames to the front, back, sides or top as you needed.
