Timber Frame

Timber frame houses are architectural marvels and many would argue that nothing looks better than a timber frame self build home. With the Self Build Heroes team working on a host of timber frame constructions over the years, we’re here to discuss why we think choosing timber in your self build home is the correct decision.

Put simply, a timber frame building uses timber studs within the external structural wall to carry the loads imposed, before transmitting them to the building’s foundations. Whether it’s a timber frame house or a timber frame extension on your self build, using timber ensures that a coherent engineering structure is consistent throughout your self build home.

Robust, cost effective, good for the environment and providing exceptional thermal and sound insulation, timber frame construction is rising throughout the popularity ranks with those embarking on the self build journey, and this form of construction will only continue to strengthen over the months and years to come.
