Timber frame houses from the team at Horton Barns. Timber is a natural product, which is recyclable and biodegradable. Timber requires significantly less energy to produce than that of a steel or concrete substance. This renewable resource gives more efficient thermal values as opposed to a standard ‘brick and block’ house, making it easier and cheaper to produce as well as heating the property.
Horton Barns offer flexible design packages, allowing you to incorporate you own ideas into the build. Our team can supply pre-fabricated timber frame panels for your self-build, or we can project manage and foresee the build from phase 1 all-the-way to the end of the project. All timber framed panels are constructed at our main workshop, to the exact measurements laid out. Panels can take a variety of styles and construction methods, allowing for user defined thermal values (u-values), to suit your various requirements.
A special thank you to your team who set about their respective tasks with the minimum of fuss, nothing was to much trouble and all the time there was that will to please the customer
Lindy & John
Extensive planning is required for a timber build as all design and pre-construction is done off-site to the required specification. All our design work is carried out at our offices using the latest developments in Computer Aided Design (CAD), ranging from detailed timber frame plans to 3D Timber frame modelling. This allows for easier and quicker erection times than that of a traditional house. On average, our team would spend 20% less time on-site with a timber frame house because of the forward planning and pre fabrication carried out by our own team of installers and carpenters.
They are a great team and it was a pleasure to work with this outstanding company once again
Using our own plant, including excavator, dumper and crawler crane we are able to efficiently work on-site without the need for additional hire, all contributing to an easier build. The advantages to timber frame houses are very apparent in aspects with the build, for example working through the winter seasons in cold weather doesn’t become an issue with a timber house due to the weathered material which is still useable in a harsh environment.
