Timber Frame Supply and Erect for a new build in Ballymena Co. Down

We were asked by our clients to help them achieve their desire for a timer frame built home that was extremely easy to heat and straightforward to project manage. After discussing with our clients we developed a package that was tailored to meet their needs. The package included: clearing the site and digging the foundations, supplying and constructing the timber frame, supplying and fitting the external block work and the supply and fitting of slates on the roof.

Project Specification:
Kilbroney Timberframe has provided the following specification to meet our clients’ needs, leaving them with the house they desire.


Foundations:
We cleared and marked out the site, then proceeded to dig the foundations. The concrete was then poured and the footings built.  We then supplied and fitted the service pipes to foundations, filled footings, raidon barrier, poured the sub floor and that was the site ready for the construction of the timber frame.

External Wall Insulation:


Insulated with 150mm Frame Therm between studs and 40mm Therm rigid PIR Insulation Board on the face of studs. This provides an overall ‘A’ rated wall with a u-value of 0.15wm²k.

Internal Wall Insulation:

Insulated with 100mm Earthwool Ecose Acoustic between the studs, to provide great acoustic values.
Perimeter Insulation:
Insulated with 25mm Therm Rigid PIR at first floor level and 150mm Rockwool within first floor in order to create a sound break

Ceiling Insulation:
150mm loft wool insulation fitted in between joists and 150mm loft wool above the joists. 25mm therm rigid PIR insulation board fitted below the joists. Combined this gives the overall ceiling a u-value of 0.12wm²k.


Windows and Doors:


To match the highly effective timber frame walls we fitted black future proof PVC sliding sash windows, along with black future proof front and back doors.

External Finish:


- The external finish was skilled block work covering the entire house.
- Roof covering that included black concrete tiles, all lead, PVC fascia and soffit.
 - Ground works including concrete path around the house, septic tanks and all sewers and gullies.


Internal Fittings:
