Timber frame Living Place
Timber framing structures, also called “post and beam” structures, are traditionally used building techniques. It consists of vertical and horizontal linear elements that require incorporating stability planes.
Timber frame structures prove to be the most efficient use of materials when constructing buildings with less than four floors. Compared to CLT structures of similar geometry and size, timber frame structures require approximately three times less timber. Additionally, timber frame houses with identical interior sizes have the advantage of a smaller exterior site footprint. This is due to the ability to integrate insulation between the structural elements of the walls.
