Self Building

 

If you are embarking on a self-build project, TTFC can offer you the key package to help ensure your project runs smoothly despite your knowledge or experience in the construction industry. Our highly qualified team of technicians make the entire process easy for you, allowing you to concentrate on the important elements.
We have built thousands of self-build houses for nearly twenty years, and bring a wealth of experience to help guide you through the build if required. With a very simple process, we have seen clients with zero knowledge and experience move into their home within 16 weeks of breaking ground.

 

Process

Design

After we have agreed the contract, TTFC will engage an independent structural engineer to design all the structural elements of the timber frame and provide us with a full structural report. Your allocated TTFC project designer will take your drawings and design the timber frame replicating your plans. You will then be issued with a footprint drawing so your engineer can design the foundations. A 3D computer model of the building will be generated which will allow clear visualisation of the project at hand. You will then be issued with a full set of drawings to sign off to proceed with manufacturing.

Manufacture

After sign off, we will begin preparations to begin manufacturing. The technician will begin generating production drawings and cutting lists, meanwhile the production team will order in all necessary materials and book a slot in the factory in line with an onsite start date. Once all is in place, we begin the manufacturing process, building it to the specification and design you have chosen. Firstly, we begin by cutting all the timber studs through our automatic saws to the correct size. Once complete we begin the assembly of the panels through a quality controlled production line ensuring accuracy. The panel are then stacked and loaded, ready for delivery.

Installation

Once we arrive on site, the completed wall panels and floor cassettes are carefully lifted and secured into place with a crane. The roof structure is then installed, ready for your roofer to complete. Once we have left site, M&E contractors can then move in on site to complete first fix. The final stages can then start, with the final insulation, air-tightness and plasterboard fitted, plastering can begin. Within weeks, you could be completing second fix elements and decorating.
