Timber frame construction is a method of building which relies on a timber frame as a basic means of structural support. Timber Framed buildings are often referred to as ‘lightweight construction’, boasting precision engineering that is remarkably strong and durable.
During construction, the open panel timber frame is covered internally by plasterboard, filled with high performance insulation. Moisture/vapour barriers are incorporated in the outer leaf of the wall which completes the structure. The outer leaf is typically stone, brick, render or timber.
