built very quickly. Once you have prepared the foundations, the timber
frame can be delivered and erected. The erection service can be carried

the frame is watertight (usually in about a week) the bricklayers or
stonemasons can start the building of the outside walls, this could be
timber cladding, brick, natural stone, render etc. At the same time the
inside work can also be started, electricians, joiners, plumbers etc.

Timber frame construction is also
environmentally friendly. Raw materials are drawn from renewable resources
and not virgin forest. Timber is a natural, non-toxic, organic,
recyclable, renewable and
bio-degradable material. Energy consumption in buildings account for 50%
of the UK's carbon dioxide emissions. Very little energy is consumed in
the manufacture of a timber frame building.
