No, not at all. Once we have the planning approved architect’s drawings, and ideally the .Dwg/CAD file, this is then passed on to our design engineer who completes what are called General Arrangement drawings. These drawings outline all inclusions/exclusions and are essentially the timber frame version of your architect’s plans. This is all included as
If using quarry stone, an external leaf of blockwork would be required as part of our package. This would be attached to the blockwork by your stonemason, typically using expended mesh. Thin-stone can be supported using external cement/plaster boarding and battens. This boarding can be rendered or plastered and painted just the same as a
Our typical lead time is 4-6 weeks from order which includes for the 1-2 weeks design and engineer's certification as mentioned above, followed by 3-4 weeks for manufacture. As shown on our Projects page, a standard two storey can be erected within just 3 working days from delivery to site. This is dependent on the

No problem - timber frame is both energy efficient and thermally responsive, while simplifying the air tightness process. We can insulate to suit your requirements. For example, one of our standard insulation packages achieves a Passive Standard u-value of just 0.11 W/m2k and as low as 0.09 W/m2k.
Yes of course - as long as you have drawings and planning permission (if required), we can provide a quotation for a timber frame extension to your existing block built home.
Definitely not - all major lenders offer mortgage finance for timber frame houses on the same terms as any other method of construction. In fact, a timber frame house is considered less risk as it takes significantly less time to construct.
