Yes, it’s perfectly ok to construct your own timber frame, 100x50mm studs at 400mm centres is the norm unless otherwise stated and a good quality plywood

Timber frame is a structural system constructed from timber studs.
Generally - yes. The builder can make his own timber frame if he has knowledge and experience, but please do not forget that the timber frame must be designed and constructed properly, no matter the construction shell.
