What Is Timberframe?
Timber Frame is a prefabricated, fast, quality controlled and energy efficient method of house construction. Timber Framing is becoming increasingly popular with new home builders, self builders and both small and large scale developers throughout Ireland.

Timber walls, floors and roof trusses are prefabricated under controlled conditions in a factory setting and then assembled later on-site.

The basic structure of a timber frame building consists of wooden wall panels, timber flooring and roofing materials built upon a timber framework. These timberframe components are nailed to the framework to provide a sturdy skeleton.

Why Timber Frame Construction?
There are many considerations that self-builders must take into account when building a new home. In the advent of what is fast becoming a 21st century war on global warming, both industrial and residential CO2 emissions have become tightly regulated. Couple this with spiralling oil costs and the irreversible depletion of Earth's most vital non-renewable resource and it is plain to see why the first and foremost issue on every new home builder's agenda right now is energy efficiency.

Some of the main benefits to timber frame construction include:
  • Speed of Timber Frame Construction
  • Factory Levels of Accuracy & Precision
  • Energy Efficiency of Timber Frame Homes
  • Cost Efficiency of Timber Framing
  • Timber Homes are Greener Homes
Recent amendments in Irish Building Regulations demand higher standards in home insulation from all new home builders. Energy assessors, also known as BER assessors are being sent out to calculate home energy ratings, and energy performance certificates (or BER certificates) are now required from all new build homes.

Timber framing is an energy saving system that cuts an average of 33% off the annual cost of heating your home. Throughout this timber frame website we provide you with essential information regarding the thermal benefits of timber frame design. Furthermore, our timber frame experts provide online guidelines and diagrams illustrating how to insulate your home to standards that will achieve optimum energy ratings from any BER assessor.

As part of our One-Stop-Shop for Self Builders, Ramstown Timber Frame Company now offers to supply the insulation materials for you. Standard, upgrade, and airtight insulation options are available and can be tailor-designed to meet any new home builders needs.
