Ridge stand construction
The ridge posts are connected to each other and to the gable walls with a ridge purlin and brought to an end. If there is a ridge purlin, it makes sense to equip the ridge post house with a purlin roof. Here the rafters run between the ridge and foot purlins and support battens and roof cladding.
This is where the ridge frame construction differs from Low German hall houses , which are divided into two, three or four- frame houses, as these are usually equipped with rafter roofs and the posts are not centrally located under the ridge.
Ridge column houses were mainly built around the 15th century in the Baden region.
