Abstract: This paper describes several important aspects of the design process of reconstruction historic timber roof bearing structures. During this process, two main fields of activities are performed. One is oriented to investigate the wood as a structural material from several points of view. The second is oriented to analyze structural aspects. The primary purpose of these activities is to gain sufficient information and knowledge in order for designers to protect historic timber structures to the maximum extent possible during the process of reconstruction.
Three reconstructed historic roof frame projects that were realized in the historic part of the City of Kosice in Slovakia are presented here. It is feasible to modify existing timber roof frames for new uses with minimal loss of the original structural members
