Thanks to the wonderful day I had!
Many British builders include variations on Tudorbethan in the range of styles they draw on, and the style tends to be associated with pastiche. Architects are rarely requested to work in the style, and though current postmodern architecture includes a much wider range of styles than the modernism associated with the mid 20th century, few architects are known for buildings which could be called “Tudorbethan”.
In modern structures, usually on estates of private houses, a half timbered appearance is obtained by applied decorative features over the “real” structure, typically wood stud framing or concrete block masonry. A combination of boards and stucco is applied to obtain the desired appearance. To minimise maintenance the “boards” are now commonly made of uPVC plastic or fibre reinforced cement siding with a dark brown or wood effect finish. In the United States, the style is often further modified by painting the timbers colors such as blue or green. The Tudor Revival style was most popular for new American homes in the 1970s and 1980s. Today, it is rarely considered for residential construction in that country as Italian, Mediterranean, and French villa style homes have superseded them in popularity. ref: Wikipedia
