As a method of building, timber frame is not new. It is the most commonly used form of construction in the western world. It's generally known that approximately 95% of all homes built in North America and Scandinavia are of timber frame construction. Timber frame accounts for 70% of construction in the developed nations of the world, from countries as warm as Australia to countries as cold and as wet as Scotland, where over 50% of all residential construction is timber frame.

In its modern form, it has been around for over a century and has a success rate markedly higher than that of conventional block and mortar construction.

It differs from block and mortar construction in that the inner leaf of blockwork is replaced by a timber frame structure. Floors, roof, doors, windows, internal finishing and services are the same in both methods but because the timber frame is a dry form of construction, it requires little or no drying-out period.
