Timber Frame Production

From Scandinavian to British Manufacture

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 here in the UK.

 

Quality Timber Frames

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.

Energy-Efficient Homes

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 the thermally efficient, eco-friendly homes that Scandia-Hus are famous for.

Flexible Build System

Our timber frame homes can meet the requirements of almost any self-builder. Each design is bespoke and personalised to the customer in terms of layout, style, budget and plot restrictions. The exterior can be clad in brickwork, render, stone, tiles, or weatherboarding and therefore can have a traditional or contemporary appearance. Our design and build package can include or exclude any number of elements; clients can just purchase the structural frame or opt for a turnkey build. 

Expert Construction Teams

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. The timber frame is erected swiftly, allowing a rapid build process. The ability for our teams to construct in all weathers means there are fewer chances of delays on site; a structural shell is usually up within a couple of weeks, even in wet conditions.
