Self build timber frames houses


Timber frame house kits

By self building with timber frame you will have a quality house that is built very quickly. Once you have prepared the foundations, the timber frame can be delivered and erected. The erection service can be carried out by yourselves but a preferred route is to get specialist contractors to erect the frame for you.

Once the frame is watertight (usually in about a week) the bricklayers or stonemasons can start the building of the outside walls, this could be timber cladding, brick, natural stone, render etc. At the same time the inside work can also be started, electricians, joiners, plumbers etc.


Energy Efficient Homes

The building regulations are getting harder to comply with for some house manufacturing techniques. With timber frame kits this is no problem as a great deal of insulation is built into the house kit as standard. If so desired extra insulation can be added, this is the flexible design characteristics of timber frame.


Self Build Timber Frame is Environment Friendly

Timber frame construction is also environmentally friendly. Raw materials are drawn from renewable resources and not virgin forest. Timber is a natural, non-toxic, organic, recyclable, renewable and bio-degradable material. Energy consumption in buildings account for 50% of the UK's carbon dioxide emissions. Very little energy is consumed in the manufacture of a timber frame building.
