Timber Frame Option
The Timber frame option offers an economical solution and may self-builders like this choice of construction as it is quick and simple. The timber frame wall panels are mostly manageable by a small installation crew without the need for any mechanical handling. The choice of insulation is really flexible depending on the performance requirements, insulation zone available and environmental considerations.
The SIP option provides a simple solution with a single application, you get the structure, insulation and air tightness in a one. The composite action of a SIP means we get an incredibly strong element with a small fraction of timber and this is great for minimising thermal bridging. For projects that are including habitable space within the roof, SIPs can clean span between the ridge and purlins giving an open plan space and highly insulated building envelope.
