Timber Frame Buildings

What is Timber Frame?

A Timber Frame home has its inner shell constructed from timber.  This shows how a timber frame build differs from a traditional build.  The wall panels, flooring and roofing are fixed to a timber frame to provide a sturdy structure, around which, the external walls are built.
