Specialists in Timber Frame Housing – Greater Manchester

As a company we have many years of experience within the timber framing, architecture, and construction industry. We offer a nationwide timber-frame design and manufacturing service, regardless of whether your plans are for a single home or a housing estate consisting of multiple residences.

Our team can work to existing design, create a bespoke design or we have a wide range of existing distinctive timber frame home designs and styles readily available. You can choose any of our models, modify a plan or use our architectural design service, and we will help you get to every step of the process.

From Start to Finish

Our experts can support you with your entire self-build process from the start to completion. The team aim to simply the process and reduce stress with an overall aim of delivering your dream home. We will organise all the important aspects of the order for you, make the process move as quickly and smoothly as possible, and take the environmental impact and safety into account.

Following design, planning and manufacture, the team will create a custom-made construction plan and put the frame together on your land. This involves all the external and internal walls, along with roof trusses, floor joists, and often stairs as well.

Easy to Insure

Timber Frame homes in the UK have a positive standing when it comes to fire protection, and they abide by current UK building regulations and laws. This makes it a relatively easy process to purchase insurance for such structures, with premiums comparable to those of traditional houses. It is important not to mix up Timber Frame residences with Scandinavian-style homes, which can be more challenging when it comes to insurance.

Cost Effective

Not only can the primary cost associated with timber-frame construction may be lower than the traditional approach, the real advantages come when taking into account the speed of completion times and the simplification of the required trades. It is estimated that overall savings of 20-25% in total cost and 30-40% in build time are achievable.

Furthermore, a fixed cost is known from the outset, allowing for precise budgeting. In the long run, bills for heating will also be reduced, along with no subsidence, cracking or damp issues.

Thanks to advanced fabrication techniques and computer-aided design capabilities available in managed production environments, timber-frame constructions can be crafted with precision. Not only is this beneficial for the stability of the building, but it also allows for effortless carpet installation and kitchen fitting.

Our vision for the future is to provide affordable, truly sustainable, zero carbon homes without requiring major changes in the way we live.
