Category: Timber Frame

Timber frame is one of the most energy efficient methods of construction available today. For this reason, it is becoming the most popular method in Ireland following the SEAI’s Part L and Nearly Zero Energy Building (nZEB) regulations.The regulations at the moment are quite stringent and have left people increasingly concerned about how they are going to achieve these measures with a traditional block build. A timber frame house is much easier to insulate and make airtight among many other benefits. For these reasons, it is easy to see why timber frame accounts for over 70% of all new builds in the developed world.
