MODERN TIMBER FRAME HOMES

Timber frame - is an ultramodern construction technology.

The basic principle of a classic timber frame house is a wooden structure, formed by a system of high-quality beams of wood. The space between the frames is filled with enclosing elements, including effective insulation or double-glazed windows.

Timber frame house made using glued laminated beams has special properties that favourably differ  it from whole-wood framing. It is high strength, durability, absence of warpage and cracking, aesthetics. Structured glued wood up to 40 feet long allows you to design houses with complex architecture and design, opens up wide opportunities for designing large-span rooms and implementing the most daring design ideas.

When temperature and humidity change in glued wood, stability of the structure system remains unchanged, unlike whole-wood. Fire resistance of glued wood untreated by flame retardants is 2-4 times higher than that of metal. The special connection of the frame elements gives it stability even in case of earthquakes of medium strength. Upon completion of construction work timber-frame house does not shrink and is ready for finishing works.

SPACE FOR CREATIVITY

The wooden frame carries all the load, so the filling of the openings between the posts can be made of a wide variety of materials – stone, brick, blocks, glued beams, panels with mineral wool insulation, modern double-glazed windows. A wide selection of materials gives freedom in choosing the finish of the house and its final exterior.

The wooden frame usually is usually exposed to the outside and painted in a dark color visually dividing the light walls into many fragments of different shapes and makes the timber-frame house easily recognizable.
Timber-framing is great for building not only individual houses but for public and commercial buildings as well.

Special attention of architects has recently been paid to the so-called “glass fachwerk”. In this kind of houses double-glazed windows are used as the filling of walls. Glazing from floor to ceiling, excellent natural illumination, space and the fusion of the house with the surrounding nature attract more and more fans
