In recent years, timber frame houses have become highly recognized and demanded throughout European territory. This is largely due to the low cost of production and short installation time of timber frame structures. The cost for manufacturing timber frame structures is considerably lower than the cost you will have to count on when choosing to build a concrete structure. Timber frame houses are durable in all climate conditions. These houses will be warm during the coldest of winters and you will feel great living in them during the hottest of summers, as they use technology that provides a natural microclimate in their premises.
Fast production – timber frame constructions do not take time to dry due to the lack of concrete in the manufacturing process, there are no delays in construction due to bad weather conditions, because the frame constructions are manufactured at the factory. Inside works can be done right after the house installation (assembly) has been done. All of this makes the house construction much more faster.
Efficiently – efficiency results from timber frame that has been pre-fabricated (at the factory) – this ensures that the frame will be manufactured in a dry and clean production facility atmosphere giving space to precise, industrial production with high precision and applied methods with experience of many years, this all reduces the risk of manufacturing errors. Construction site is much more vulnerable to building waste, which can cause environmental pollution.
Environmentally friendly – well managed forestry, which isolates the carbon from the atmosphere, actually contributes positively to the improvement of the environment compared to masonry structures, which contribute to the high consumption of water resources in construction of masonry buildings, as well as large quantities of fuel consumed by transportation.
Benefits / Priorities - timber frame buildings are easier to modify / upgrade. For example: it is easier to change, improve the internal layout of a building. It is easier to insulate timber frame buildings because it is easy to fill the frame with insulation and if a necessity occurs with additional insulation. Correctly placed materials in timber frame structures contribute to a smooth heat exchange, which makes it easier to exclude the possibility of cold bridge occurence in the construction. All internal communications can be hidden inside the carcass (electric cables, sewer pipes etc.), which makes it easier to fit furniture in the corners of the house, in places where it would not fit in masonry structures. When it comes to the availability of communications during the repair works, they will be easily accessible, as the frame construction is covered from the inside by a gypsum board that can be easily replaced. Building constructions made out of timber frame are very flexible and adaptable - constructions can be built with domes and curved shapes. Timber frame buildings are permanent buildings that will serve for centuries to come.
Lightweight construction – in house construction, different solutions can be used to construct foundation which are lighter, faster to install and more friendly price wise in comparison to masonry buildings.
Mold and termites? - forget about mold and termites, because the materials used in timber frame structures are pre-fabricated to prevent mold, fungi or unexpected guests, termites.
Increased fire hazard due to use of timber? - Forget about the high risk of fire hazard, in fact wooden structures are much more fireproof and safe in the events such as fire and even earthquakes than masonry buildings.
How will the amount of heat generated in a timber frame construction, heat spread, heat capacity affect me? - Great question! House construction with a high thermal mass or thermal capacity provides protection against high and low temperatures - the amount of heat at night can cool down or heat up the temperature at home. If the house is unable to distribute the amount of heat received, for example during the summer period, then a house with a high heating capacity can become an encumbrance. Team Norge House taking into account the recommendations of the Scandinavian companies experienced in the construction of timber frame buildings has tremendously improved the timber frame house structures to a level where the frame is technologically adapted to different situations and using high quality thermal insulation and with a thorough, well planed house design this all ensures house protection against extreme temperatures.
