Prefabricated New Build Timber Frame in Rural East Sussex
Self-builders in East Sussex chose Vision’s open panel pre-insulated timber frame system for their new build home in the pretty countryside village of Hartfield. With external timber frame walls insulated with 105mm Actis within the panel design and a cladded external façade, the new walls achieve a u. value of 0.16, far lower than the building regulations requirement of 0.26.
Regulations have changed particularly with Approved Document Part L in relation to fuel & power which means new dwellings are to be far more energy efficient than previous regulatory requirements.
The design for the new build home (which was created by the customer who is an architect) includes a double height open plan area over the living space which would be created using glulam feature trusses which you can see in the photos below.
