Three Bed Detached House Sleaford

We supplied and installed the bespoke timber frame for this self-build project in October 2023.

The upstairs to this detached house is vaulted throughout, with a large, glazed opening at one end set back from the overhanging roof. It features a gym, library and three bedrooms.

Our factory-insulated external wall with VCL and service batten provides a 0.15 U-value.

Size: 230m sq
Timber frame construction time: 15 days

Mixed Housing Phase 3 Harwich

Phase three of a 42-unit residential development in Essex for an existing client began in December 2023.

With only four house types and a proactive main contractor, this site is ideally suited to timber frame construction.

There was no wasted time between trades, with the roofers making the plots watertight within days of timber frame completion.

All panels are factory-insulated according to the latest building regulations.

Size: Ranging from 151-208m sq
Timber frame construction time: 1 week per plot

Five Bedroom Detached House Essex

This detached house in Ongar, Essex, is a reasonably modest design from the outside. However, the specs and scale are far from modest with a gross floor area of 320 sq. m.

As our client is aiming for passive performance on this project, we designed, supplied, and installed our highest-performing factory-insulated panel. We boosted the thermal performance by fitting an additional layer of 70mm of insulation internally, providing an impressive u-value of 0.11 W/m2K.

We also designed the joists around the MVHR system and installed an airtight membrane at the floor junctions.

We look forward to re-visiting once complete to see the result of the all-important air test!

Size: 320m sq
Timber frame construction time: 20 days

Detached House Cambridge

The vaulted ceiling makes this tiny detached house look much bigger than it actually is.

Squeezed between two existing plots in the heart of Cambridge access was very limited, but we successfully got our hi-ab lorry set up to install the timber frame.

Despite the small size, our client opted for a highly insulated panel, and we added 40mm of insulation internally to achieve a 0.12 u-value.

It was a joy to work on this project.

Size: 74m sq
Timber frame construction time: 6 days

Three Bedroom Chalet Bungalow

In September 2023, we installed this small yet spacious chalet-style bungalow in Kirkby-Le-Stoke, Essex.

The open plan layout downstairs maximises the perception of space, making it appear much larger than the actual footprint.

It features one bedroom downstairs and two bedrooms in the roof space, which were created by using attic trusses.

The attached garage provides some valuable storage space.

Size: 158m sq
Timber frame construction time: 8 days

Detached House Wimbledon

This challenging large timber project, built in October 2022 was of a very high specification, featuring exposed glulam beams, open living spaces and high ceilings.
