Timber Frame Self build

The quickest and most cost effective way of building is to use a timber frame. Usually the timber frame will be erected and watertight within a week, so while the bricklayers are building the outside walls the tradesmen can be working inside installing the services. The energy efficiency of timber frame is very high, which is much needed these days because of strict building regulations. The accuracy of timber frame panels is very high because they are produced in a workshop environment.
