Timber Frame

 

Timber frame is the preferred method of construction in Northern America, Scandinavia and much of Europe. It has now been the dominant technology in house-building in Scotland for many years.

 

And this is for good reason. Not only is timber a sustainable resource, it is simple to construct and can be put up quickly in inclement conditions. It is also allows for high standards of insulation and, best of all, is cost-effective.

 

Then there is the flexibility. Timber frames can have a variety of outer skins. While our designs are illustrated with the traditional rendered block and slate roofs, stone or brick could be used for the walls, and tiles for the roof, if this suits local tradition or planning guidelines.In Scandinavia and Canada timber cladding is the preferred option, and now in many areas of the British Isles this is also seen as an economic and sustainable alternative.

 

HEBHOMES offer high quality 150mm timber frame kits, to ensure good performance in the most extreme climates. 

 

As well as timber stud walls our TF kits have engineered trusses and 254mm metal web SpaceJoists. Comined with our internal partitions,  high quality membranes and windows this is a truly cutting edge timber frame product.  

 

Flexibilty is also available with alternative insulation options.
