Ridge stand construction

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A ridge post construction is a post construction with a purlin roof .

The ridge posts run through the building from the foundation or the upper edge of a brick cellar or storey to the roof ridge . A continuous stand inside the house was called a ridge column .

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.

Isolated examples can be found in the area of ​​eastern Hesse , southern Lower Saxony and western Thuringia .
