Why Choose Timber Frame?

Here at KTF housing, we are committed to providing our customers with the highest level of service. We pride ourselves on providing our customers with their dream new home, while keeping sustainability and eco friendliness at the forefront of our operations.

Timber Frame construction method is more cost effective

As the majority of the construction of your home is pre-manufactured off-site right here in our manufacturing facility at KTF housing, the Timber Frame construction method is much more cost effective than any of the other traditional building methods, both to build and to live in.

This is due to the fact there is less manpower needed on site to erect our houses. As these homes are pre manufactured off site, the construction time is sped up by nearly 30% compared to other building methods.

Running costs of a timber frame home are significantly lower due to the high quality insulation and the natural insulating properties of wood.

Timber Frame fixed prices

Timber frame construction allows for flexible design ideas and also a fixed price agreement before any of the work begins which eliminates the chances of any extra costs throughout the building process.

Self-Builders are becoming more and more aware of the popularity of timber frame homes in similar climates to here in Ireland, like Scotland, Scandinavia & Canada. Our airtight timber frame homes are perfect to combat these climates with the high quality levels of insulation.

Timber Frame is Environmentally Friendly

Timber Frame houses are also eco-friendly due to timber being carbon negative and requires significantly less energy to produce than other building materials. This can be a very important factor for those self-builders who are conscious about their carbon footprint and want to take care of their environment.

Testimonials

I hope all is well and you and all at KTF are keeping very busy.

I just wanted to drop you a note offering a big thank you and looking for a little support.

We moved into our new house two days ago and although there still lots of small decorative items to complete internally and the garden landscaping to be completed.

Both myself and Linda want to say a huge thank much for yours and the teams support at KTF. As you know, this was a fist time project for me and I started out completely green and the support shown was so helpful.

Please find attached some images of the house as it looks today. I hope you feel we have done your timber frame justice.

 Neale and Linda, Essex РSelf Build Clients.

We used KTF timber frame on our self-build. I would highly recommend them. Our house is not standard with a barn roof and large window openings. KTF were really good in communicating with ourselves and our architect re Design elements and structural issues, making sure everything will run smoothly.
It was clear from the quotation what is included and what is not included, also the payment plan is very straightforward. Once manufactured, the structure was up in no time! We agreed on a delivery date, they delivered on truck early that morning and organised a crane with a driver and within few days the structural house was standing. The panels came with insulation and damp proof membrane which really helped our U-values and reaching the NZEB standard.
