Timber Frame houses, are houses that respond to any design, shape, size or customer needs.
The timber frame forms the structure of the house, that is, the box of uprights and wooden crossbar that will be the House. This structure is industrialized, manufactured in a workshop and partly mounted on site, covered with walls and roof with insulating materials.
ADVANTAGES OF TIMBER FRAME ARCHITECTURE :
WHY A TIMBER FRAME HOUSE USES TO BE CHEAPER THAN A TRADITIONAL ONE?
What lowers the cost of timber frame construction is precisely the speed in making and finishing the structure.
Once the foundations have been laid, the structure, walls and roof made at the factory with all the corresponding controls, they are moved to the site and been assembled there. In a few days you will have the box of the house finished with most of the facilities done.
From now on, all that remains is to finish the house as in any other work.
WHY IS A TIMBER FRAME HOUSE MORE SUSTAINABLE THAN A TRADITIONAL ONE?
The materials used, wood basically in the structure and the enclosures (walls and ceiling) are sustainable par excellence. A great balance is achieved between thermal insulation, waterproofing and breathability of the walls.
A timber frame house saves a lot of energy costs, so the cost of energy is close to zero. It contributes to improving the quality of life inside and is respectful of the environment.
