A building of the Timber House – Fast and Relatively Cheap
After creating and receiving a sketch, it is advisable for the family circle to evaluate the details of each home project for a couple of weeks, to evaluate the building needed and desired for yourself and your family so that you can still make the necessary details and changes. They will be implemented in the building project by sending you a resume sketch.
In parallel, it is necessary to order and develop a topographical plan of land ownership, on which it is planned to construct house projects. Surveying is carried out by certified persons or surveyors in geodetic works. In the case of large land properties, surveying has not been carried out throughout the territory, but just below and around the planned buildings. The customer must provide access to farmers (enclosed areas and shelters) and a copy of the land plan or other graphic material showing the area to be measured. The topographic plan is required to develop a plan for the building plan on the basis of it – the master plan (i.e. the Masterplan).
If you are currently thinking about what kind of private house for a family to build, an affordable solution is the construction of a wooden frame in a private house. Such a house has a great thermal insulation, it is natural and hence – a healthier home. As well as the construction of a wooden frame in a private house is relatively quick and such a house has low construction and operating costs.
Construction of a wooden frame building – a long-used and popular technology.
Everyone wants to live further from loud neighbors, in silence, closer to nature, so sooner or later there is a desire to build a private home. Before making an important decision about building a wooden frame building for your family, consider various important aspects, such as what base of the house will be built, what heat insulation materials will be chosen, how the communications will be made, what will be interior decoration, sound insulation, etc.
What is one of the natural materials that a person has always used in building housing? Wooden houses have long been built in the Scandinavian countries, Japan, the USA, and Canada. The oldest wooden frame houses in Germany are about 800 years old. And this proves that using proper construction technology, the wooden frame house is brilliantly durable. Framing technology in building construction has been used for a long time. But relatively recently (over the past decades), this technology has become popular especially in the construction of private houses, because it has special advantages.
The most practical, quickest and most convenient solution is a wooden frame building built from industrially manufactured wood frame systems, which is why this house is also called a modular house, a folding house or a panel house. This technology allows the building to be erected very fast (about three months) and construction is fast and accurate because much of the human workforce is used.
A very important aspect in our climatic zone – a wooden frame house can be built any time of year and in all weather conditions. When building other types of buildings – brick houses, blockhouses, concrete houses, etc., it happens that, for example, weather conditions make construction last longer.
The foundations of the wooden frame house are not heavy, therefore the construction of such buildings is very popular in areas with seismically active areas. It should be taken into account that it is desirable to build the foundations of a wooden frame building up to the time when frost enters. If the foundation is built during the frost, it can affect the quality of the foundation of the building.
The construction of a timber frame building is relatively lightweight if a wooden frame building is compared to other types of buildings, such as concrete houses, brick houses or blockhouses. Thanks to the light construction of the building, you do not have to wait until the house “sit down”, it can begin to live right after construction.
The timber frame house is energy efficient, as the walls have high thermal insulation and low thermal conductivity of the enclosing structures, and the use of modern, efficient thermal insulation materials reduces heating costs. The wooden frame house is pleasantly cool in the summer heat, while in winter the wood walls emit heat, creating a sense of comfort. Still, this house has good sound insulation as well as low construction costs, as the frame technology offers affordable prices and a simple assembly process.
The timber frame house can create the desired architecture and finish.
A wooden frame building (folding house, modular house or panel house) can be constructed in any design. Ready-made building projects are a very beneficial solution. For example, North Houses offers around 30 ready-made private house projects – for all tastes, needs, families with more and fewer people. As well as the company’s finished projects are projects for small wooden framed private homes (with a small living space), these homes are suitable for a couple or one person.
North Houses also offers the opportunity to build a wooden frame in a private house according to an individual project, and then the customer can implement any ideas, fantasies, and desires.
If a wooden frame house is being built, the building’s external finishes can also be tailor-made according to the wishes of the client. A wooden frame house may even look like a brick or a house with the decorative render.
Easy to equip, dismantle and move the wooden frame house
The timber frame building is relatively more convenient to carry out engineering communications – dragging and concealing walls. For example, the heating and water supply pipes can be relatively easily drawn through the walls without damaging the appearance of the building. It is also important that thanks to wood frame technology, communications can be relatively easily accessed and repaired, if necessary. In the same way, if necessary, the thermal insulation of the building can be changed without any special problems. An important advantage is also that a wooden frame house can be easily and inexpensively dismantled and transferred to another place where it can be assembled again.
