An analytic study of the French timber framed three-aisled barn in Aclou, built in the 15th century, has shown that it is possible to reconstruct the original building process by means of knowledge of workmanship, of recise measuring and of digital documentation. This reconstruction has been an attempt to regard historical buildings as a result of a building process and not just as a historical monument. The focus of this study has been to find and to use the still existing traces and markings from the original building process as argumentation for a reconstruction, a description of the workmanship that lies behind the timber frame construction. It has been an attempt to make a scientific research of the intellectual part of the craft to show and to revive some of the simple but very efficient techniques and tools which were developed throughout the past thousand years, and which today mistakenly have slipped out of use.
