Q

Can I use a timber frame for first floor extension?

I like the idea of using a timber frame (with timber cladding) to add a first floor to a single story property. I'm thinking it may be cheaper, quicker and better insulated (as well as being made from a renewable material). Subject to planning (and suitable foundations) is this a good idea?

yes you can add timber frame first floor extension, i actually constructed one in abergavenny s.wales,as long as existing foundations are suitable to take load,it does make the construction time quicker and is of better insulation than brick/block
