Stages involves in the timber frame construction process — January 5, 2011
The construction of a timber frame house involves a few stages. This article is intended to give a little bit of insight into each of these stages so that you know what to expect when you embark upon your self-build project.
The design stage is the first and arguably the most crucial stage in timber frame construction. This is the stage where you and your chosen team of designers will determine the layout of the house according to your preferences. Timber frame specialists will ensure that the design meets your expectations and they will try to overcome any obstacles at this point.
After the plans for your house have been approved, the actual frame of the house will be manufactured. This takes place off site in a factory environment to ensure the utmost accuracy in line with the initial drawings.
Once the components of the house have been cut, they will be delivered to the site whereupon the actual erection of the structure can take place. This stage will be completed as quickly as possible to limit the amount of time spent on site. When everyone is happy with the final structure, the project can be signed off.
