English: Jettying (jetty, jutty, getee (obsolete) from Old French getee, jette) is a building technique used in medieval timber frame buildings in which an upper floor projects beyond the dimensions of the floor below. This has the advantage of increasing the available space in the building without obstructing the street. Jettied floors are also termed jetties. In the U.S. this style house became confusingly and mistakenly called a garrison house. Most jetties are external, but some early Medieval houses were built with internal jetties.
