This timber frame ablution is situated high on a mountain in the Tulbagh area which was only accessible with a 4 wheel drive. The entire unit was delivered on our 6m trailer and installed in one piece on site.
The exterior cladding is Siberian Larch which has been installed with T&G and oiled with a brown oil.
CAPE TOWN - Entire construction in timber frame (example of how a timber frame home can look like a conventionally built home - but of course far superior in it's R value , sustainability, hassles etc.)
The house looks like a conventionally built home from the exterior because we used special imported boards in order to be able to plaster over as per the clients preference. This house is totally off the grid and is extremely well insulated and has clean contemporary feel and design. The timber frame walls, floors were installed in 3 days.
Another unique project which took us to the forest in houtbay. The house was custom built to the owner’s specifications. Spruce sliding doors and Siberian Larch cladding as used in all our projects.
The client preferred to keep the interiors basic and original and they love the timber feel inside and out. Some trees were used as the foundation of the structure.
