Timber-framed homes are the choice of the hour. Every day, more and more builders resort to timber frameworks for construction. It is not only a sustainable option but a cost-effective option as well. Moreover, unlike the sand and brick structure, a timber-framed structure has no waste generation. However, many curious minds are interested in the project completion duration.

When will your project be completed? If you’ve hired a timber framework professional in Herefordshire, ensure that you get the building permission first so that the rest of the project is completed on time.

How much time does it take to complete a timber-framed house?

A typical timber-framed house construction takes around 12 to 14 weeks to complete. The completion date is fixed after the design has been finalised. Once the design is finalised, a project team is assigned to the timber frame structure. The complete construction process is as follows:

  • The concerned authorities make and approve a detailed design of the timber frame house.
  • Different materials and the amount of timber requirement are allocated to concerned departments.
  • A quality team is engaged to check the design requirements and the amounts of timber used for the structure.
  • Employ artisans for the timber cutting process to enable precise timber cutting process.
  • Set up the timber frames in different parts of the construction and get the same inspected by the quality controller.

What are the different types of timber frame constructions?

There are generally three types of timber frame constructions: platform frame timber construction, floor-to-floor panel frame and volumetric frames. Read on to learn more about the different types of timber frame constructions.

Platform frame timber construction

In this, prefabricated wall panels are attached using the floor-to-ceiling panels system. This floor deck is used as a platform for constructing the next panel.

Floor-to-floor panel frames

In this type of timber construction, wall panels with storeys height are attached from the floor to the ceiling. Continuous wall panels are placed throughout the stories, making the structure aesthetically pleasing to the eyes.

Volumetric timber frame

These timber structures are used for wall and floor compartments of the property. So, the volumetric timber frames are used to construct the individual rooms like the kitchens, bathrooms and other rooms.
