By building houses with wooden frames, U-values can be achieved far better than specified in current building regulations. Typical wooden walls consist of waterproof and breathable membranes, cladding panels, structural frames made of wood, vapor barrier, and inner plasterboard cladding.

Insulation is installed between the top of the wooden frame and usually fills the entire thickness of the outer wall. If a higher standard of insulation is needed than usual, thicker outer walls can be built.
The outer walls can be covered with brick walls that hold weights or cement screeds to maintain the look of a conventional home. A variety of lightweight cladding materials are also available, including wooden cladding, cement cladding on a lathe, cedar tiles, and our solution for raincoat cladding.
Wooden buildings can be built faster than masonry walls because wood is cut under factory-controlled quality conditions. The lack of wet waste causes shorter drying time internally. Shorter site time means a shorter overall development program.
Wooden houses and building codes
The durability of insulated wooden frames is an important requirement because walls must support cladding material. External walls are needed to ensure adequate fire resistance and fire spreading resistance.
