Technology of timber frame houses


Technology of timber frame houses

KM Building works with individual projects, therefore we can adapt fully to all requirements of the project. We create timber frame houses in seven months. In the wall construction we use a double protection for wind isolation in the insulation. It means that the timber frame has been sheathed with an OSB chipboard and a wind film which provides higher insulation, therefore the timber frame houses have more significant sustainability.

The construction process of timber frame houses divides into eight steps:

1. Planning and sketching. The duration of planning and sketching of the individual project lasts from three to four weeks. Jointly with a client we understand wishes, opportunities of an outcome and we search for the most appropriate solutions.

2. Detailed and precise technical project development begins right away we have an agreement with the client about the capacity of the project, main costs and a vision of the outcome. Our architect creates precise technical project in six to eight weeks.

3. A compilation and coordination of an estimate lasts up to two weeks. After the coordination with the client we start a manufacturing.

4. The manufacturing process lasts from two to four weeks. During this time we construct the panels of timber frame houses. We use only a certified timber and mount in the timber frame panels.

5. A transportation of timber frame houses’ panels to a construction place takes from four to six days. It depends on a distance between the KM Building manufacture and the construction place.

6. An assembly of the house from a wall construction until a roof application, door insertion lasts from one to three weeks, which depends on a difficulty of the project.

7. An exterior and interior finish last up to three months, because it depends on the wishes of the client and an amount of involved work. We provide full interior finish. It includes a decking of a flooring material (oak, ash, pine, hardwood flooring, tile), a stair assembly, kitchen installation and interior finishing. Putting wall panels, painting, instillation of gutters, window and door trim goes for the exterior finish.

8. Project commissioning. Probably we are the only ones in Baltic States who give five year warranty for our work.
