Timber Frame homes in Northern Ireland are on the raise following latest industry reports published by the Structural Timber Association (STA). The reports have highlighted a significant growth in use of structural timber frame in Ireland and the UK over the past 12 months.

The market share increased in the UK in 2015 for Timber Frame houses to 27.6%, and is on secluded to reach a 32.4% market share by 2018.
