How To Find A Timber Frame Builder?

1 April 2022
by John Fowkes


We are very close to getting planning permission for a bungalow on our garden plot (the planner is making good noises so we are hopeful). We've decided that a timber frame construction might be preferable, in order to achieve a good level of airtightness. The only problem is, we are struggling to find a builder that's familiar with working with this type of construction. We know of several good local builders that can do brick and block construction, but we don't think this method is the best if we want to incorporate an air source heat pump.

We live in Leicestershire. Can you help us find someone?
