From affordability to speedy construction, timber frame flat pack houses offer an extensive range of benefits for homeowners. In this guide, we’ll look at five of the biggest reasons – from design to cost – to choose a timber frame flat pack house.
Easier to assemble, especially as an owner-builder
Arguably the biggest benefit of a timber frame flat pack house is that it’s easy to put together, even as an owner-builder. Since the main sections of a flat pack house are assembled in advance, the construction process is significantly less demanding and time consuming.
An expert team can assemble a flat pack house in weeks, significantly shortening the traditional assembly and construction process. The simple construction of flat pack houses has made them popular among owner-builders that would like to build their own houses.
Build in several weeks instead of several months
Since the materials used in flat pack houses are prebuilt, a house can be put together in weeks instead of months. The time consuming aspects of construction – building individual walls, flooring sections and stairways – are taken care of before the build itself, making the final construction of a flat pack house remarkable quick.
In fact, speedy construction is one of the reasons flat pack houses rose to popularity in the first pace. During the post-war economic recovery, preassembled houses and public buildings were used to replace buildings affected by aerial bombardment in a number of major cities.
Available in a wide range of designs and floor plans
Think flat pack houses are only available in a few designs? Think again. Today’s flat pack houses are available in a wide variety of styles and layouts, letting you build a house with the interior floor plan you’ve always wanted.
Depending on your budget, it’s also possible to build a flat pack house in a bespoke and fully customised design. From two-bedroom bungalows to five-bedroom family homes, timber frame flat pack houses are available in a wide variety of styles to suit any family, lifestyle and budget.
10 to 25% less expensive than a standard house
As well as being quicker to build than traditional homes, flat pack houses are far less expensive. On average, a timber frame flat pack house costs 10 to 25 per cent less to build than a standard home.
There are a variety of reasons for the lower costs of flat pack housing. One is that the design is entirely standardised, reducing the cost of building materials and creating a more streamlined construction process.
Another reason for the lower cost of construction is the significantly reduced labour requirements. Even large flat pack houses require less on-site labour than standard home construction projects, massively reducing one of the largest building costs.
Energy efficient and environmentally friendly
In addition to being more affordable, faster to build and just as customisable as an ordinary home, timber frame flat pack homes are energy efficient and constructed with the environment in mind using renewable materials.
Our flat pack houses are made using renewable timber. They’re also built with the environment and renewable energy in mind using a wide range of energy efficient interior design and heating principles to reduce your energy requirements during the cool winter weather.
