What people say about us

Sonia O'Donovan
St Judes, Dublin Road,Dundalk

“We have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Fine Living Ltd to any prospective client. Ciarán and his team were incredibly professional and approachable throughout the project. They have built us a superior quality turnkey home that has exceeded our expectations. From the first day that we met them to discuss the build it was obvious that client satisfaction was Ciarán’s main priority and this continued throughout the job.

We instantly knew that we wanted to work with him and his team in building our dream home and they did not disappoint. The attention to detail in every aspect of the house is extraordinary. Thank you for making our dreams a reality and for ensuring the whole process was enjoyable from start to finish!”

“We purchased our home from Fine Living in December 2020 and we cannot speak highly enough of the service and our experience on the whole. The quality of our new home is better than any we have seen in a new build, completed to the highest of standards, which is a testament to Fine Living in terms of their attention to detail and the high levels of quality and specification.

The customer service both pre and post-sale provided by Ciaran and the team at Fine Living has been exceptional and far above and beyond our expectations.  We would recommend Fine Living and the team to anyone without hesitation.”

“Fine Living Ltd built our new house in 2021. They couldn’t have been more professional or more helpful. Ciarán Byrne went through our drawings in detail and pointed out several areas where we could make substantial cost savings without compromising on quality, just by organising things slightly differently. The timber frame kit arrived and was erected very quickly with a minimum of fuss.

The finishing is excellent throughout. We are extremely happy with Fine Living’s work and with their approach to the job and wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone who is considering a timber frame as part of a self-build project.”

Timber Frame vs. Traditional Block-Building Method: Frequently Asked Questions

The benefits of timber frame?

Timber Frame construction offers several advantages, such as a quicker building process, higher build accuracy, potential cost savings, a lower carbon footprint, better thermal performance, and design flexibility.

How much faster is the Timber Frame construction process?

A Timber Frame structure can be structurally complete within a week to ten days, while traditional block-building can take several weeks. This is due to the off-site manufacturing and partial assembly of timber frames, panels, and roof trusses.

How does Timber Frame construction contribute to a more sustainable and eco-friendly building?

Timber Frame Construction uses timber sourced from FSC or PEFC-certified sources, which are classified as renewable materials. Additionally, timber locks in carbon dioxide and is less energy- and resource-intensive than bricks, mortar, concrete, and steel.

What is the thermal performance of Timber Frame homes like?

Timber Frame homes have better thermal performance due to the thinner walls allowing for greater insulation. They also heat up faster through the central heating and typically achieve higher Building Energy Ratings (BER), resulting in lower running costs for fuel and reduced carbon emissions.

Can Timber Frame homes be designed to match any architectural style?

Yes, Timber Frame construction offers flexibility in design and layout. The timber frame can be left exposed or clad with various materials to achieve virtually any design aesthetic.

Are Timber Frame homes more expensive?

The initial design and construction cost of a Timber Frame home may be similar to a traditional block-built home. However, savings can be made in other areas, such as reduced labour costs, more reliable supplies, and shallower foundations.

How does the build accuracy of Timber Frame homes stack up against other types of homes?

Timber Frame homes have a higher level of build accuracy as they are engineered products, manufactured, and assembled in a factory environment by a dedicated team. This results in a higher standard of workmanship and quality control.

What are the structural strengths of Timber Frame homes?

Despite being relatively lightweight, timber can be engineered to be structurally as strong as steel, providing a durable and stable structure comparable to traditional block-built homes.
