The timber is a renewable raw material that Gokstad Hus considers to be the most suitable construction material when designing environmentally suited houses.

Timber provides a stable and dense wall with good insulation.

Frequently Asked Questions

The term ’’Timber frame' typically describes a system of panelised structural walls and floors constructed from small section timber studs, clad with board products, in which the timber frame transmits vertical and horizontal loads to the foundations. It is generally not used to refer to timber post and beam structures or to timber engineered structural frames.

In terms of materials used, the cost of timber is lower, but not by much. Also, whether timber or brick are used the rest of the build costs will be the same. Foundations, plumbing, sewers, access roads and the like will cost just as much regardless of the frame. The main saving with timber frames is in the construction itself. 

Timber frame construction is an efficient and flexible build method. Compared to traditional masonry, it can accommodate more timber frame insulation in between the wooden studs, as in a cavity.

Wood framing can last 50 to several hundred years, depending on care and construction quality. Here are the factors and issues to consider when deciding how long a wood frame house will last:

  • Quality of Construction
  • Frequency of Repair and Maintenance
  • Local Climate

Wood is the only truly renewable construction material on the planet. But wood and timber frame construction, in particular, is far more than a renewable resource or “nice” building method.
