Our system is a hybrid of these. While we go much further than the standard closed panel timber frame system, we install the insulation, fit single use lifting straps for craning the large panels into position. However, because we are a bespoke, custom supplier, this also means, that should the site necessitate it, we can fabricate to any size to suit the on-site conditions. We have supplied (and erected) homes on several sites, where the loads have had to be transferred to smaller vehicles (including farmers bale carts) to get them to site. We believe our system provide immense flexibility while ensuring a fast erection on site. It normally only takes one day to erect all the Ground Floor wall panels of a sizeable home.
Although these are custom homes, which may have vaulted cathedral ceilings, and large open plan areas, we try our very best to keep the construction simple as this is not only good during the build stage, but will inevitably generate benefits for the finished house.
While the majority of our homes are timber clad, we do not fit the siding as standard, since Cedar, though an excellent material for cladding, does not like being continually handled as may occur in some of the sites we serve.
