Self Build Prefabricated Timber Frame Home in Andover

We began to install a New timber frame prefab home for our client in Andover at the beginning of November. Within 3 weeks, the complete timber frame structure was in place.

The soleplates are installed onto the client’s already prepared foundations.

Once the soleplates are in place, the ground floor panels can be delivered.

The Hiab lorry off-loads the panels to within the site for the timber frame erectors to manually fit to the soleplates.

Once all the external and internal timber frame panels, creating the new ground floor living space, have been installed, the joists and flooring follow.

The posi-joist system allows for ease of access for first fix trades, click on the link to find out further information on our Flooring and Roofing Solutions.

With the new first floor created, the first floor panels could be delivered and lifted by the Hiab for installation by our erectors.

Here is also a view from the internal which shows the underside of the joists as well as how the external insulated panels look prior to batten and plasterboard. You can read more on the insulating materials we use.

The below photo shows the aerial view of the first floor panels prior to the roof trusses arriving.

The trusses for this project are Attic Design and required a crane for lifting to the new roof level.

To have a better idea of the finished houses, on the left is the architects drawing showing the external wall finishes the client has chosen.
