A modern timber frame house replaces the inner wall with a timber frame strong enough to support all the loads of the house. This is usually covered by plasterboard internally, and a brick or block and render external finish. Quick to build, a frame and roof can be erected in a matter of days. This means that the whole structure is then weatherproof, which allows other trades to work internally whatever the weather conditions.
Throughout the developed world 70% of houses are built of timber frame. In the U.K. houses of all types, right up to multi-storey flats are built with timber frame. Most of the top 25 companies and virtually all self-builders now use the system.
