A building technique associated with England's Tudor Era (1485-1603) – ''Jettying'' may actually go back farther in English History. In it's 15th Century AD form, the style was related to the staggering (overhang) of one floor (extension) over another. While it may occur ''haphazard'' in construction, ''Jettying'' was remarkably sound. Jettying is also characterized by often uneven or unrefined wooden beam support framing, supported by heated mud brick dabbing. The style was common in many Tudor Era English Cities, when space was at a premium. The style would also move across The Atlantic, being adapted into many early Colonial American Towns.
