Caplin Homes specialise in building the most energy efficient timber frame houses. They dramatically reduce heating and maintenance costs and yet are no more expensive to buy than conventional homes.
Whether it’s a five bedroom detached house for a private owner, or two up, two down affordable semis for housing associations, we can take a project through from design to completion without fuss, using established materials and methods.
Sustainably sourced timber is natural, renewable and far less energy-intensive to produce and apply than other traditional materials. It provides an excellent low carbon alternative to traditional brick and block or steel and concrete structures.
Our industry is turning toward these alternative systems and embracing their benefits. 30% of all UK homes are now timber frame. Aside from the sustainability credentials, offsite timber frame construction also allows homes to be built faster with assured product quality.
Factory produced timber homes are usually erected on site in a matter of days. The National House Building Council estimates up to a three-month time saving by choosing timber.
Air tightness is one of the most important factors influencing a comfortable, energy efficient living environment. Closed panel timber frame technology allows for factory-fitted reflective multi foil insulation, greatly enhancing energy performance.
With over a decade of experience looking at building design through the lens of carbon reduction and energy performance, we combine build-speed and expertise with leading-edge methods to maximise cost efficient sustainable construction.
We embrace a boundary-pushing approach that challenges traditional building techniques and sets a model for innovative, green housing.
