Large Timber Frame Family Home Replacing Existing Dwelling in Windsor

Like many of the larger new build home projects we undertake, the Client began their new build process with Vision 2 years ago in late 2017, when initial designs were sent to us to price for the timber frame, but ensuing battles with planners, as is the story with many replacement dwellings, meant for a time delay on the project.

Finally in early 2019 the Client advised that they were ready to commence and the building contractors we recommended to the Client, began works in April, demolishing the existing property and starting on the groundworks which were designed to accommodate a large basement underneath the new timber frame super-structure.

Here you can see the basement which was supplied to the Client by

The architect’s artistic design above shows the external finishes.

With the basement installed and the follow on groundworks complete ready for the timber frame panels, which included the suspended concrete floor which will create the ground floor level. The timber frame panels could begin to be delivered and installed.

Below are some photos from site of the timber frame installation process.

A telescopic handler is used for lifting the panels from the lorry to the new first floor level where they will be installed.

This view between scaffolding shows how the external face of the timber frame looks in preparation for the renderboard to the first floor and the ground floor finish will be brick.

The external wall timber frame panels have been insulated using 105mm Hybris Insulation with H Control Hybrid battened to the internal face of the external wall panels which will then receive the plasterboard.

The scaffold has now been erected over the entire structure and the roof trusses have begun to be installed.

As the build progresses we will post further updates on our website and social media pages which you can follow on our website, Facebook or Twitter.
