FAQ’s About The Construction Process
(Projects will vary considerably and the following “useful” information is for a guideline only.)
1. Who’s responsibility is it to prepare the site?
As the site owner, it is your responsibility to ensure that the site is ready for the work. Our Timber Frame will be designed to be erected from your beam and block floor or concrete oversite.
2. Where is the frame made?
The timber frame structures are made in our factory in Lincolnshire then, subject to site access, transported to the site on the back of 12 metre trailers.
3. What timber do you use and why?
CLS Timber, kiln dried wane free whitewood generally from Scandinavia. This is widely regarded amongst timber frame builders as the best quality and most durable timber available and therefore the most appropriate for the job.
4. How long does it take to put the timber frame up?
This obviously depends on the size of the frame, the resources you have available to you and to a certain extent, the weather conditions. Timber frame does not rely on the weather as much as more traditional techniques, that said, in fair weather, one of our specialist teams would have a typical frame completed anywhere between 7-10 days.
5. Who puts the frame up?
You may already have made arrangements yourself to erect the frame, otherwise we will provide a specialist team who will meet the frame at the site, off load and erect it. The finished frame will then be thoroughly checked and signed off to the clients’ satisfaction.
