Breathable timber frame construction

I just uploaded some images of one of our finished projects completed last year and beautifully photographed by Bo (thanks Bo!). This project is a timber frame build and this method of construction was chosen not just for it’s sustainable credentials, but because it is also a very affordable way to build. We used all breathable natural materials, the wall spec was lime render on wood fibre insulation over the frame, more wood fibre insulation between the frame (270mm in total) and then clay board internally with a clay plaster and a lime wash to finish.

The beauty of the build was it’s simplicity and the high thermal and acoustic performance, combined with it’s humidity regulating, breathable, mould resistant and anti-bacterial properties. What a great space! See our residential projects page and click on the ‘Breathable timber frame extension, Surbiton’ link to find out more.
