Timber framed houses

Eco Home
Touchwood Homes has found that there are a number of advantages timber framed homes have over traditionally built houses which is why we specialise in this type of design.

Using an advanced timber frame system means the house will perform superbly in terms of energy use which will minimise running costs, as well as that magic feel of a timber frame home. New clients visiting homes we have built are always amazed by the ambiance of the homes – a wonderful fresh feel that has to be experienced to appreciate.

Visually a timber frame home can have any appearance required, from modern cedar board cladding, render panels or a brick clad structure if the planning department requires. There are no limitations.

To complement the super insulation timber frame we would also offer using our Passivhaus foundation system. This is a great advantage over typical strip foundations since the entire foundation structure is thermally separated from the ground, so no heat is lost to ground. The system also uses much less concrete than strip foundation and can be completely finished within 5 working days – and that's from an untouched site.

Using our Passivhaus standard windows and doors is also highly recommended. These are some of the best on the market being triple glazed, with U values down to 0.79. We always use these on our own developments since the insulation quality and general build quality is stunning.

Once you have an idea of the type of house you would like, we at Touchwood Homes are here ready to create an initial design for your low energy dream home.

Often clients approach us when they have obtained planning permission on their plot. We can then use the submitted plans as a starting point for the design, or other times we can assist with the planning application.
