Timber Frame Details
Wrapping the frame
The timber frame normally stands partially or completely inboard of the internal finish and is revealed to the interior of the property. The frame is completely surrounded by a structured build-up whose function is to protect and insulate the building and protect it from the weather. This zone consists of external finishes, insulation and membranes, which can surround the frame unbroken and are therefore able to do their job more effectively. In this way the timber frame can meet and exceed all current regulations and standards for weather protection, insulation & air tightness . We do not advocate revealing the frame to the outside of the building.
