Are you thinking of adding an extension to your home but don’t know where to start? You may have considered a timber frame extension kit. This is a great option if you want to add extra space to your home without breaking the bank. In this blog post, we will discuss everything you need to know about timber kits.
What are timber frame extension kits?
Timber frame kits typically consist of a timber frame and Oriented Strand Board sheets, which are manufactured off site, using sustainable softwood. They offer a quick and easy way to add extra space and value to your property and have become the most used construction method in Scotland. It’s not surprising, as timber kits offers the best of both worlds — quality off-site fabrication with speed assembly on site.
What are the benefits of timber kits?
Fast on-site construction: Timber kits are constructed off-site, in a factory, meaning once the frame arrives on site, it can be assembled within 7-10 days. The frame isn’t exposed to the elements for that long, leaving it ready for external finishes.
Eco-friendly: Timber is a renewable resource, with a neutral or even positive carbon footprint. The wood for the frames comes from carefully managed forests, using fast-growing coniferous softwood.
Long-lasting: Timber frame structures that are engineered and installed properly can last for years.
Superior thermal insulation: The structures are engineered in a factory with extreme precision, making them airtight. Also, the whole structure requires less energy, making it cheaper to run.
Flexible design: Timber home kits can be made to measure for a bespoke solution, or whole kit packages are readily available for a budget-friendlier option.
Cost effective: With ready-made kits, project budgeting is far more accurate. Short installation time reduces the overall build cost as well as time spent building your home or business.
With finance and mortgage options are readily available, timber home kits are becoming more and more popular with both self-builders and developers. They can be used for both residential properties and commercial buildings. Please note that you’ll need to apply for planning permission or building warrants from your local authority, before any work takes place.
