Timber Frame Supply and Erect for a new build in the town of Trim in Co Meath.

Project Specification:

We were contacted by our clients who had the desire for a self built home that would be easy to project manage themselves. Taking this into consideration we developed a package that would allow our clients the ease to manage the project themselves without additional cost.

After discussing with our client we developed a package that met their desired 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 also the supply and fitting of samaca natural slates on the roof.

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 140mm 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:

To match the highly effective timber frame walls we fitted Cream PVC sliding sash windows.

External Finish:

- Roof covering that included natural slate samaca, all lead, cream PVC fascia and soffit.
