Craftsmanship Combined with Quality Materials
When Scandia-Hus was first established in the UK in 1974, our timber frame homes were designed and manufactured at our Swedish factory and transported to this country on huge articulated trailers.
Although we maintain close links with our Swedish origins, today all our kits are produced in the UK. Our timber frames are meticulously manufactured to exacting standards under strict factory controlled conditions, so a consistently high quality can be sustained. As more of the construction work is undertaken in the factory, there is less to be done on site. Not only does this make the build process quicker but also ensures a greater degree of accuracy.
The eco-credentials of building with timber frame is a key consideration for many self-builders. Not only is the timber we use sourced from sustainable forests, meaning it is renewable and low impact, it also helps to create an air-tight energy-efficient structure. Combining the timber frame with triple glazed windows and high levels of insulation produces a thermally efficient home.
Our involvement doesn’t end when the timber frame set has been manufactured and despatched to your building site. We have shell erection teams available to erect the frame in-situ to help ensure that the precision-made components are assembled correctly.
