Timber Frame Homes
With today’s engineering technology and preservation techniques, timber construction is for life. Whether for a simple playhouse or granny flat, permanent residence, cosy log cabins or luxury bush lodge, our fully customisable timber-frame construction is the perfect building method for all your environmentally-friendly, cost-effective and time-saving construction needs.
This traditional yet modern building method sees hotel and home construction using a timber frame, posts and beams and finished with pre-manufactures elements and panels made to spec. This method of construction then proves to be extremely advantageous.
You won’t face typical issues such as rising damp, the assembly speed can be reduced by almost half that of a conventional brick and mortar home, and the structure requires no drying out time; meaning that once the structure is up, you can immediately start with finishes. We did not invent timber frame construction but we have refined it to a precision process of construction.
Timber also has excellent insulating properties as-it-is, and on top of that, our construction design means that the hollow wall cavities can be densely packed with bulk insulation material for optimal energy efficiency.
Thanks to modern developments, our timber constructions are designed for safety and offer increased fire protection through the use of non-combustible linings to protect the frames, treatments with fire retardants, and the use of timber with sufficient charring rates.
Timber is a renewable resource and all timbers used in our frame homes are procured from accredited plantations. Timber also has a strength-to-weight ratio that outperforms that of convention building materials and offers more structural flexibility, meaning less chance of structural damage typically caused by heaving clay, or the settlement cracks typically found in masonry construction.
Our timber constructions will also save you space as the timber-frame walls are much less bulky than brick walls, and – on average – expand your internal floor space by about 1 square metre for every 7 running meter of external wall length.
Due to the light-weight design of our timber houses and hotels, building in remote and hard-to-reach locations become much easier and more accessible, our carbon emissions are significantly reduced as less energy is consumed in both the preparation of construction elements and the transport of materials.
