Gokstad Hus - it's the most comfortable home
Single-family homes only have one kitchen and a single set of utilities as they are meant to house one family. This differs from multi-family properties, which are designed to allow several families to live independently of each other even though they are under the same roof
Why should you consider Single houses?
A single – family home is generally defined as a freestanding residential building that is set up to accommodate one family. It does not usually share walls with other structures and it has its own parcel of land that belongs solely to the owner of the home.

Benefits of Timber Frame Houses

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.
