Favorite thing: Before 1520 the stages in half-timbered houses were often "en encorbellement" (corbelled construction). After 1520, it was forbidden.
As the whole frame is of wood (often oak), it is strong but can distort somehow. Look at the strange shape of the main horizontal beam of the central house !
