A QUARTER of all new houses in the UK will be built using timber frame systems within two years, according to a market report by the UK Timber Frame Association.
The report claimed growth was most pronounced in medium-rise developments and detached homes.
It said that over 41 per cent of housing over two storeys is now timber frame, up from 37 per cent in 2004.
UKTFA chief executive Bryan Woodley said: 'The picture for timber frame will continue to be positive.
'It is a great endorsement for timber frame, which is established in the mainstream.'
