In contrast to traditional masonry construction, timber house construction is light in weight which allows the building envelope to heat up very quickly. In a house, where heating is intermittent, this fast response can result in increased comfort and energy saving.
Carbon Neutral Timber
Timber is a natural material and requires minimal energy to process it into construction materials. During its growth, timber absorbs carbon dioxide and stores the carbon in its cellular fibres. You can get more information about frame and truss in Gosford via https://heydenframeandtruss.com.au/
When it is burnt or rots away, the wood releases a quantity of carbon equal to the carbon it has already absorbed through its lifetime, thus making it carbon neutral.
Prefabricated Timber Panels
Prefabricated timber houses are manufactured as panels under factory conditions then transported to the site where the building is assembled. The panels are constructed with timber studding and composite wood board materials, known as sheathing, which are nailed onto the exterior of the timber frame to form the rigid panel.
External Wall Cladding
External walls can be faced with load-bearing brickwork or cement rendered blockwork to give the appearance of conventional houses. Several lightweight cladding materials are also available including tiling, slating, timber boarding, cedar shingles, cement to render on lathing, as well as proprietary rain screen cladding solutions.
