Have you been thinking about the material you will use for the roof trusses and wall frame for your next home or building project? Most constructions in Melbourne use premade timber frames, manufactured by specialist companies such as Heyden Frame and Truss. When these structures are made in the factory, you are assured that they are accurately fabricated to precise tolerances in a controlled environment. They are not constructed on the job site, to be exposed to the external elements.
The prefabricated timber frames can be erected on site rapidly. With a roof structure formed from timber trusses, you can create a weatherproof building in a matter of a few days. This allows you to continue the work within the building in sheltered conditions, while roof finishes and cladding are also being installed simultaneously.
Prefabricated timber frames are used not only on houses; they are also extensively used for schools, apartments, hotels, office buildings, and sporting facilities. They are also frequently used for buildings that are two stories high.
Choosing to self-build is a rewarding experience, both financially and aesthetically. At Heyden Frame and Truss, we have been helping owner builders construct high performing, beautiful, low energy timber frame homes, for more than 30 years now.
If you’d like to consider using prefabricated timber wall frames for your self-build project, it’s very likely that you will be happy to learn about the specific benefits. See the list below:
* You build on budget
The work on prefabricated timber wall frames takes place off site, in a dry and clean factory, where the impact of weather is greatly reduced. With this controlled condition, all speculations regarding the time-frame are meet, thus making your budget completely predictable.
* You build faster
Building a prefabricated timber wall frame is much quicker than the traditional brick and block method, as timber frames can be erected in subzero conditions. Heyden Frame and Truss team can work at any time of the year, so your build time can be reduced by 1/3rd, thereby vastly reducing the cost of construction.
* You build a warm home
A naturally insulating material, timber gives a prefabricated timber wall frame a high level of thermal efficiency.
* You build with versatile material
The versatility of timber frame allows us to create buildings of just about any design – from a traditional rustic retreat to an ultra-modern metropolitan residence.
* You build a long-lasting home
A well-built timber frame home will last for many, many years. That’s because timber is incredibly robust and tough, making it an ideal builders’ choice of material.
* You build green
Timber is classified as carbon neutral – and an infinite renewable material. At least one tree is being planted to replace one that is felled. Heyden Frame and Truss takes our green commitment very seriously.
