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.
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.
