Best Of Design A Frame Home
Frame House by Jonathan Tuckey Design
When building a kit house, you will always find the option to design and build with a woody plantation or a lightweight modern steel frame. Although some clients have a preference for wood on steel in the home view, we would like to share some practical information to make this decision easier.
#Why wood or steel? – Wood and steel framed kits are usually used in countries with little access to project house builders or land blocks making buildings with concrete slabs impossible or very expensive. With wood or steel framed houses, you do not need to engineer retaining walls, underground drainage or compacted contents. Rather you can build a framed floor system, also known as a high floor system or a house pole, straight to your site. Modern plantation and steel lumber supported by Australian design standards and other proactive professional industry bodies. Most builders partially make a house (wall and roof frame) according to your design and send it to your block. Depending on which stage of building you’ve chosen, it’s best to send easily to follow directions or the carpenter can build a house for you.
#Sustainability – Fortunately, wood is a sustainable resource and I’m sure we all want to keep it that way! Sustainable plantations of Australian plantations replant trees after harvesting them, to ensure that trees continue to be abundant natural resources.
According to the Australian Forest Learning site:
“Sustainable forest management (SFM) refers to the management of our private and public forests to ensure they continue to provide not only a good supply of renewable timber for present and future generations, but also safeguarding their environmental and social services.” There are other benefits to choosing a wood-framed house. It does not require much energy to build wooden houses, therefore less greenhouse gases are produced and released into the atmosphere.

#Durability – Western Australia is a beautiful place to live in, and while building we must take into account the environment! The timber industry shows that all new homes are protected against termites. You can make sure your home is proof of termites by using the right materials, construction methods and routine checks. Once the building is finished, make sure your house stays resistant to termites and check your house regularly. Depending on the exact location, most builders use the Blue Pine Treatment Protection System or the copper chromate arsenate (CCA) where the elements are more severe, giving the client peace of calm to European termites and borers. Although some clients may prefer to see wood they may want to combine the two ingredients to reach the end of the build they are most pleased with. Steel-framed houses are made of mild, lightweight, durable steel produced from partial recycled materials. All joins are fully welded and treated to produce very strong, true and lightweight resistant termites.
#Proof Tester and Borer – Steel walls and framing in steel homes are naturally 100% termite and European Boroter proof. This means that there is no need to spray steel with additional chemical treatments to protect them from pests. Because there is no need to care for steel homes, they are recognized worldwide as a healthy alternative for people with asthma.
#Strength and Durability of Steel – Steel homes are made of very strong and durable light steel. Steel homes provide a structure that is resistant to various Western Australia climate conditions. Steel frames will not twist, warp, shrink or extend over the years, retaining strong and durable structures for years. With a steel house, you will not experience a window sticking out, a corrugated roofline or a jam door from a steel frame that moves or changes over time.#Flexibility in Design – Choosing a steel house, giving you flexibility in designing your home that you may not have with other materials. For example, because of the lightweight nature of steel and the ratio of strength to weight, you will have greater capacity to design longer ranges and large open living areas. In addition, you can be creative with a roof with a steel house.
