An accidental self-builder!

Speed is the decisive factor, as timber frame proves the perfect build solution for family dream home

Timber Innovations client Dave Powell became a self-builder by default – but is delighted he took the decision, and now putting the finishing touches to his lovely new timber frame home near Stafford he shares with his family.

“To be honest, I wasn’t looking to do a self-build initially,” said Dave. “We looked at a number of properties, nothing top of the range, just something I could improve to our own desires, and when we found somewhere, we couldn’t get the planning permission for the changes we wanted to make, so we demolished it, and started from scratch.

Southouse Architects’ studio


No job too big or small, as Timber Innovations help architect create a stunning modern studio

Timber Innovations is proud of our many working relationships with clients, and other relevant professions, and among them is with the Oxford based architect Paul Southouse. To that extent, we were delighted to be of service when Paul approached us to discuss his idea of creating a studio space, in the garden of his home, to accommodate himself and his staff.

 

It is actually one of the smallest jobs Timber Innovations has done, and our role in it was relatively peripheral. But we were happy to help, we liked what Paul was seeking to achieve, and the finished product is fantastic.

the outcome.

The virtue of SIPs

SIPs – a ‘new kid on the block’ that’s continuing to grow in popularity among the self-build community, and others!

A rapidly increasing enthusiasm among self-builders, and others in the construction sector, to opt for SIPs as their primary build method over the past few years is such that it prompted Timber Innovations to launch a specialist customer service catering specifically for this market.

 

Structural Insulated Panels (SIPS) are a method of construction that have actually been around for some time – indeed, SIPs are popular in the United States, where they have been in use for over half a century. But then, they do say that what starts off as a good idea in the USA inevitably finds its way to the UK once it takes off on the other side of the Atlantic.

 

An advanced method of construction, SIPs offer excellent thermal performance, light-weight structural strength. SIPs use less timber than traditional timber frame and are one of the most economical and eco-friendly forms of construction.
