TIMBER FRAME HOUSE KITS
The biggest benefit of choosing a timber frame for self-build houses is the speed of construction, which can be up to 30% faster for a typical family home.
Traditional construction methods are at the mercy of the UK’s unreliable weather. If houses are built using traditional brick and block, then bad weather slows or stops work on site and makes it extremely challenging to make a building watertight. This can cause expensive and frustrating delays.
Timber frame construction on self-builds are a different story. Most of the timber frame kit is prefabricated, and delivered to site, ready for a rapid installation.
When using timber frame for your self-build project you’ll see exciting progress in a matter of days rather than weeks and it may even be that your foundations don’t need to be as deep, leading to more of a cost and time saving.
The faster the timber frame goes up, the faster the building can be weather-tight, and your roof, windows and doors can all be installed. Work can then start on the interior, with first and second-fix plumbing and electrics and interior plastering all possible earlier than with brick and block builds.
You can even paint and decorate sooner when using timber frame construction because of the dry construction methods used reduce the risk of plaster shrinking and cracking.
The savings do not stop there. Timber frame buildings are better insulated than homes built with traditional methods, giving greater thermal efficiency, and continuing to see savings on energy use for many years.
The advantage of timber frame building methods is that your dream home becomes reality faster with a better build quality and more affordable.
