Debunking Common Timber Frame Myths

  • It is a myth that you cannot insure or get a mortgage on a timber frame home.
  • Structural timber frames are designed to be just as fire resistant as any other building. It is a myth that timber frame is more prone to fires.
  • The story of the 3 Little Pigs has plagued the strength of timber framed buildings. In fact, the oldest buildings in the UK are constructed using structural timber frame.
