    Hi all, which is best and what is your experience of timber frame houses with external blockwork vs the traditional block build? What are the advantages or disadvantages of timber frame, costs differences etc? TIA

    It seems the consensus is that due to energy efficiency requirements, costs tend to be equivalent but as with everything, it will depend on the project. Just to note, timber frame doesn’t necessarily need external blockwork – you can use cladding to plaster over directly which will save on costs and look the same as a traditional render finish.
