If you’re an architect you may already know that there are a number of advantages for you working with timber frame. At QTF Homes we work with a variety of Artcitect’s based in Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England to bring their plans to life with high quality timber frame kits to complete there designs. Here are just a few of the reasons why our architects have chosen to work with QTF Timber Frames to complete their projects:
