Timber is in the DNA of Australian homes. It’s a living reminder of the connection we feel to the world around us and the duty we have to help preserve it for future generations. Timber framing is strong, versatile and, most importantly of all, endlessly renewable.
Timber is low cost
Timber framing can be prefabricated off site for maximum cost efficiency. Last-minute adjustments are easily made on site by skilled carpenters using their own tools. Extra timber is as close as the nearest hardware store, cut to the exact size required to avoid wastage.
Timber is long lasting
Through continual innovation, today’s lightweight timber framing can offer durability, termite resistance and fire predictability. Decades of experience have developed a building material that is trusted, safe and strong.
Timber is kinder to the planet
The use of timber framing in home construction naturally leads to the need to constantly plant new forests and re-plant existing ones. And every forest we plant helps reduce greenhouse gases and make our world a cleaner place.
