just spent 4 days battening and boarding 100m2 of cement board on a timber framed school , had to ping lines through from corner to corner just to get the wall straight, cant help but think if it had been a metsec buildng it wouldnt have taken half the time !

timber frame is a mare ian lad. i done an ewi using a rail system over a milne frame mechanical fix with 20mm cavity space. we had to string top to bottom every 2m distance and every fix had different packers like +or- 1,2,3,5,10s spirit level on every fixx at 250 centres, it took twice as long but i managed to counter charge the wood butchers. i always allow more for timber frames

with the fast track way we build surely metsec would be better , were working on two housing sites that are timber framed with a block skin on outside and rendered! insulated metsec would be quicker and more viable , were rendering houses that have only just had the blockwork finished!

its a shame that timber framed buildings are still been sold the same price as traditional build

timber frames are being used a bit right now because its cheaper than a steel frame structure with sfs infill (metsec) price of steel plus recession is the prob but a good metsec job should be straight as a dart so makes fixing render system a doddle. bring back the good times
