Building a house for a particular environment — July 8, 2012
A lot of people find that the major reason for getting hold of a plot of land to build a home on is the view it provides. If the location is lovely then you naturally want to make the most of it and this is something you can do with timber frame construction. Timber frame construction enables you to use lots of glass in your structure in order to see more of your view from more of your home.
You may want to create a kind of gallery aspect of the view to one side of your home. The timber frame enables you to build large spaces that look out onto lovely surroundings as well as long wings of the home that often prove really popular in terms of the interior design possibilities they create.
The fact is that timber frame construction enables you to work with your surroundings and to build with them in mind. Creative designers are happy and willing to take on the challenges associated with building for a particular environment and it is great to see what they can come up with when they take a look at your brief and start to play with ideas.
