Timber framed houses are the new trend

As an alternative to traditional construction materials some people are turning to timber frame houses, and it is easy to see why they are becoming so popular. Firstly, they are quicker to construct than brick built houses and the flexibility of timber framed construction to be either traditional or contemporary makes it a popular choice. Another benefit is the energy-efficiency of this building method which means it is a great option for those wanting to be eco-friendly and for those concerned with the damage caused to the environment by the production of conventional building materials. As timber frame houses are built with a high specification of insulation they allow builders to achieve high levels of energy efficiency, so energy costs are low. The design of the timber framed build can vary from a small, bolthole by the coast to a large timber framed home or anything in between. The services of an experienced architect will be needed and will give you the opportunity to discuss your ideas and settle on a design with which you are happy. The architect will then be able to draw up the plans and apply to the council for the relevant permissions and advise on how to proceed.
