Timber Frames


Getting the best return on your investment with timber frame.

Nowadays every self-builder is aware of the benefits associated with timber frame construction; qualities such as speed, efficiency, accuracy and flexibility are common knowledge within the self-build industry. These benefits have always been at the forefront of timber frame construction and account for the dramatic increase in popularity the construction method has experienced over the last 25 years. More recently benefits such as sustainability and product innovation have simply reinforced these traditional benefits to further cement timber frame as the number one construction method for the modern day self-builder.

So with the construction method speaking for itself, the key for the new self-builder is to select a timber frame manufacturer who can best cater for the needs of their individual project. Timber frame manufacturers are responding to an increasingly dynamic market place and providing more and more services to better meet the requirements of the self-builder and their project. The tricky part is selecting the one which best services yours.


Somewhere very near the top of the potential timber frame suppliers checklist should be the scope of service. The nature of a modern day build process is becoming increasingly complex and coordinating the various phases in a typical build route can be extremely demanding. Fleming Homes offer a range of one-stop-shop services including a free design service, a comprehensive planning and building warrant option, SAP calculations and engineering.

The obvious benefit for the consumer is that the self-build journey becomes much easier. Less obvious, but also important is the fact that this allows Fleming Homes to become involved in the build process at the earliest opportunity. By using expertise, knowledge and specific timber frame experience Fleming Homes is able to contribute to quality decision making that is entirely specific to the build method you have chosen. By utilising this expertise the self-builder can maximise on the many benefits of timber frame construction through specific timber frame design.


Managing Director Hayden Martin explains; 'The key to maximising the benefits of timber frame is to exploit the advantages at every step of the process from the earliest possible opportunity. It is common for a self-builder to design their home first and then select their build method, which is the reverse of what it should be. To get the best value from a particular build method the design should be directed by the advantages of that method. Fleming Homes recognise the value of this and offer a range of services that ensure timber frame expertise is introduced early on in the new build process'.
