SC4 Carpenters Ltd understands that the key to any successful and efficient build is getting the structure water tight as soon as possible.
Timber frame construction is typically at least 30% quicker than traditional builds.
Brick work is removed from the critical path of construction to enable work to start internally much sooner than for traditional builds.
The timber frame structure for an average 2/3 bedroom house can be erected in as little as one day and be watertight within 6-10.
Timber frame erection is less weather dependent than masonry, making project planning more predictable.
Timber frame structures enjoy a reduced drying out time.

Jim & Yvonne's New 5 Bed Home in West Berkshire
Rapid progress of design and build enabled us to move into our wonderful new home within 10 months.
After 40 years happily living in Winchcombe Cottage we realised the time had come for an upgrade.
After reviewing options we concluded that rebuilding was better than attempting repair. Used to living in a wooden house we were keen to accept a replacement
based on modern, energy efficient, timber frame construction, such as that offered by SC4 Carpenters Ltd, who designed, project managed
and built the house from ICF and timber frame.
SC4 dealt with the design, planning consent and construction, carrying out timberframe erect, carpentry, roof tiling, kitchen and window fitting, as well as project managing demolition, ground works, mechancial and electrical, including photovoltaics and a pellet-based biomass boiler feeding under floor heating.
In spite of adverse winter weather that delayed completion of the groundworks, once started, the main timber frame structure was delivered and erected in just one day, and was waterproof within a matter of weeks, enabling rapid progress to be made on the interior.
We were able to move back in within 10 months of the demolition of the old house. Designed to fit the original footprint and keeping the main features, including basement and attic, we felt at home at once and continue to appreciate all the energy saving benefits.
