What are the timber frames built with?

The timber frames are all built with pre-fabricated insulation between the timber frame panel studs, making the property energy efficient and eco-friendly. This aids in compliance with the new standards for insulation set by Building Regulations. Factory fitted insulation is by far the preferred option for self-builders. Timber frame properties are made using sustainable timber. The structural framework uses stress graded softwood timber which is known for its strength, durability and resistance to the elements. The embodied energy in timber is low and the processing of timber to its finished state uses more than 25% less energy than that required for alternative materials.
