Oho! Here you are. The last one to edit the MHS article. Well, as you see, there's nothing to do for me but to surf the wikipedia. Unfortunately, my account doesn't work in the English part. But I think I'll create one here. Simon --User:SymTec ltd.18:54, 2 July 2006 (UTC)

Translating Fachhallenhaus[edit]

Thats quite a task youve started there! Translating myself between german and english in both directions now and then I know how difficult this can be ;) Nevertheless I just couldn't resist to spot some mistakes. The most important would be that in germany the Fachhallenhaus is not considered to be a longhouse. The germanic cattlefarmer longhouse is an ancestor but became extinct before the middle ages began. The Fachhallenhaus as such can not be dated earlier than the 13th century at the moment. Some of the buildings called longhouse in England and france may be related to the germanic longhouse but probably less to the Fachhallenhaus. Another mistake is the explanation of the name. It could be read as "hall house made of bays". A "Fach"=bay was normally two "Gefache" long. This is similar to the english hall house that was also devided into bays. Such a "wealden" hall house for example could have a hall of two bays and a "chamber" bay added at either end making the house four bays long. The smallest "Kate" type (cottage) Fachhallenhaus would have two byre bays, one "Flett" bay including the hearth and a chamber bay thus also counting four bays. A bay is the room between posts (major uprights) while a Gefach is a panel between studs. This is different to english and norman Timber framing where studs can be placed rather close. Anyway good luck and lots of fun for the task --T.woelk 23:41, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
