Timber Frame for Self Build Homes

Timber frame is a fast and cost effective construction method perfect for your self build home project.

Timber Frame for Self Build Homes

The biggest benefit of choosing a timber frame for self-build houses is the speed of construction, which can be up to 30% for a typical family home.

Traditional construction methods are at the mercy of our famously unreliable weather – 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 self-builds are a different story. Most of the timber frame kit is prefabricated in our factory, and delivered to site, ready for rapid installation. 

Because the timber panels and roof trusses can be assembled while your groundworks and utilities installations take place, you’ll see exciting progress in a matter of days rather than weeks. It may even be that your foundations don’t need to be as deep, leading to more cost and time savings.

The faster the timber frame goes up, the faster the building can be weather-tight. Your roof, windows and doors can all be installed sooner. And work can start on the interior faster, with first and second-fix plumbing and electrics and interior plastering all possible earlier than with bricks and mortar builds. 

You can even decorate sooner, because the dry construction reduces the risk of plaster shrinking and cracking.

The savings don’t stop there. Timber frame buildings are better insulated than most homes built with traditional methods. That greater thermal efficiency means you’ll continue to see savings on energy use.

The bottom line is that the advantage of timber frame building methods is that your dream home become reality faster and more affordably. You also get cost certainty – which is vital when you’re building to a budget.

With a self-build home, knowledge and planning are everything. Feel free to pick our brains with a no-obligation email or call to our friendly team.
