Are you unsure of the best method of building the structure of a new build? There are many options to choose from, from man-made materials such as steel or concrete to more natural choices such as timber or mud; we are not short of possibilities.

Timber has shown to be a trusted method for building a home, but why is this?

Timber frames are quick to erect.

Timber frames can usually go up in the space of 2 weeks, meaning all other trades can come in and start fitting out the rest of the building. It also doesn’t need to dry out in the way a brick and block structure would.

They are easier to heat

Timber frames are much easier to heat and they retain the heat much better than other materials too.

Environmentally friendly

Timber is a renewable source and is a sustainable way to build a home, which is what makes it so popular in countries such a Switzerland and Scotland.
