As you may be aware, many of Western Australia’s homes have traditionally been built using a standard double brick method, and for many builders, this trend continues today. However, as new methods of construction are introduced to the WA market, customers now have a wide range of styles, designs and materials to choose from.
With over 50 years’ experience in building for harsh Australian conditions, Thompson Sustainable Homes utilise a timber construction method that will deliver your home a lot quicker than more standard building methods, in some cases, homes can be delivered in as little as 14 weeks.
In addition to the faster building times, timber construction has a number of other cost saving benefits including:
- On-site costs It comes as no surprise that a reduced build-time will also lead to a reduction in on-site costs for supervision, administration and amenities
- More energy efficient Timber frame homes have a drastically smaller carbon footprint and will save you valuable money on your energy bills, year-in, year-out
- More space Many people are unaware that timber construction actually increases your interior living space. At only 40% the width of double brick, this method is ideal for narrow lots and will literally give you and your family more room to move
