Timber Frame Houses
The build Process
Timber frame construction is an established building technique that has been used for many years. If you are unsure of the process enabling you to obtain the timber frame home of your dreams, please read through the stages below;
STEP 1: Architect prepares detailed plans.
An Architect is essential for designing a dwelling to your specific requirements. We use these plans to develop drawings in conjunction with Certified Engineers regulations, then we provide the client with a copy of the substructure/base plan which should be forwarded to your building contractor.
STEP 2: Construction of substructure.
STEP 3: Timberframe construction on site.
At one of our many consultations a mutually agreeable delivery date is arranged and so prior to delivery of your timber frame kit you, the client, organise the appropriate scaffolding to be on site. The manufactured timber frame panels are delivered on the date specified and erecting begins that same day. As we are members of the UK Timber Frame Association and the National Standards Authority of Ireland, we follow their strict guidelines and so it usually takes up to two weeks to completely erect your timber frame dwelling.
Step 4: Internal and external finishing.
Ensuring your house is sealed from the elements is the next stage, this means your roof receives felt and lath as soon as the trusses are in place. Finally, the external doors and windows you have chosen are fitted enabling work to begin on the inside of your dwelling, i.e., electricians, plumbers, plasters and so on. Also, your building contractor can commence with the exterior shell of your property, be it brick, block or other materials. And so, the property dream is quickly becoming a reality.
We feel it is necessary to consult with our clients throughout all stages of developing your timber frame property therefore ensuring we provide a top-quality kit and service
