If you missed the updates on our Facebook page of this modular timber frame home, we have installed the complete timber frame structure including external batten for both renderboard and cladding, all in 8 days with the roofers shortly commencing as well as 1st fix electrics and plumbing!
Above is our YouTube time lapse video of the build so far where you can see the installation of the timber frame being undertaken by the use of a hiab vehicle, which reduces the amount of lifting equipment required on site and the length of time it takes to erect the timber frame structure.
This construction is ‘single skin’ meaning that there will be no additional block/brickwork to the external face of the structure. The ground floor will be renderboard with an acrylic render and the first floor clad in Siberian Larch.
These photos show the foundations onto which the timber frame will be installed. The timber frame cassettes will sit on the outside blockwork on a sole plate which is installed to the external and internal blockwork.
In this photo you can see the ground floor panels lifted in stacks from the Hiab lorry to where they will be installed onto the ground floor sole plates.
As well as the panels being delivered to site, the windows were also delivered by the Hiab which were supplied to our factory from our window supplier in Estonia.
The windows will be fitted by our carpenter who will also install the larch cladding to the first floor with specialist plasterers to render the external renderboard to the ground floor.
With lots of trades now booked in to complete their works, from electricians to heating specialists, screeders and dryliners, the build will progress quickly over the coming weeks.
