One of our largest and most popular ranges, with many size and style options available. A contemporary look, with beautiful Siberian larch cladding on the exterior and a plasterboard finish inline with modern houses on the interior.
Timber frame consists of wall panels (complete with layers of insulation, vapour barriers, etc) with plasterboard on the interior layer and vertical larch cladding on the exterior. The timber we use to construct the frame has a strength class of C24 or higher – more in line with demanding Scandinavian requirements than the C16 class commonly found in the UK – to ensure the highest quality possible. Plumbing and electrics are installed within the wall panels, hidden from view.
The exterior vertical cladding can be treated, painted, or weathered to a beautifully natural silver/grey. We favour slow grown Siberian larch for its aesthetic beauty, strength and durability – it’s one of the toughest softwoods in the world. It has few knots, and provides a clean, contemporary and consistent look. The outside of the frame can also be cladded in brick, block and render, stone, tiles, etc to suit – many models in our passive timber frame range feature a combination of cladding and render for a modern look.
The prefabricated panels come together really quickly on site, so the build time with timber frame is very quick; with foundations complete, our show home was at watertight structure stage in only four days.
Timber frame is an ideal option if building regs are required.
