Eco Builds

Timber frame is the most widely-used structural building method in the world, offering a fast, eco-friendly and highly-insulated building solution.


LJ Developments are professional builders who care about the health of your family and the earth as much as they care about high quality craftsmanship at an affordable price.

We are experienced contractors with great attention to detail and a dedication to build you a home that is totally suited to you and your family. Unlike some larger firms, we spend time with you at every stage of the build to discuss the various options available to you. We can help design and build you a home that you and your family can enjoy for many years to come.

We have constructed many timber frame houses and larger developments from London to the surrounding local areas and we can advise you on the different types of materials used and how the construction of your new home is undertaken.

Most contractors are not so knowledgable about the newest eco-friendly products that are available. Those who are, often charge a premium for green products, although the actual costs are often comparable. By 'going green' you are not only creating a healthy home and planet, but you are also saving money on heating and electricity costs. Many eco-friendly products add beauty and carefree maintenance as well.

Advantages of timber frame:

  • Minimum 'U' value of 0.21 which is 20% more than is required in a traditional build
  • Reduced heating bills
  • Improved sound insulation
  • Moisture control and reduced condensation levels
  • Speed of construction
  • Lowest CO2 cost of any commercially available building material
  • Adequately responds to environmental issues concerning energy use during production and after construction
