Static loading tests for timber frames with large hanging walls using dry-mud panels were conducted. Following results were obtained. 1) Failure mechanism of the frames is roughly classified into damage of the walls and breakage of the columns. If the columns of the frames were broken, bearing force of the frames is smaller. 2) If the columns of the frames were not broken, restoring force characteristics are varied by specification of the frames. 3) If the side of the columns in which was inserted the Sashigamoi was pulled, the columns are broken at about the half of the flexural strength.
