Posted By: seascapeWelcome Pugliese, on the start of your journey. As to timber frame - how long is a piece of string?! What u value do you want to achieve/how much money do you want to spend/do you have limited floor space which will effect depth of wall/are you in a severe weather area, which will effect outside finish?A good place to start is on the Natural Building Technology (all natural, breathable)/Kingspan (phenolic - high u values for less depth, but not breathable) websites. They give you standard wall build up sizes and accompanying u values. It's quite easy to then do the costings - expensive! Also look at warmcell (paper), EPS, rockwool and lambswool combinations. Viking House website is very good for info.Don't discount masonary either, especially if your site has sun. Good websites are Denby Dale House/Tonyshouse/Zero Carbon Hub Tarmac Homes Project.....just a start - good luck!
