Sustainablity

A Philosophy of Sustainabilty

At Timberset we're doing something wonderful, special and unique. We truly love timber, and genuinely care for the planet so our exclusive building system utilises sustainably sourced timber to build beautiful, high performing and environmentally friendly structures.

The Timberset system is perfect for large and small homes, cabinsgranny flats, offices, retreats, outbuildings and even retaining wall panels.

The Savings from Pre-Manufacture

Precise Construction

At Timberset’s specialist factory we precisely machine our unique interlocking timber planks that make up the structural walls of the building. The walls are then transported to the building site, along with any other components, for simple and fast construction.

There is also the option to completely pre-manufacture cabinsgranny flats and  modules of a house/building (up to specific size limits) that can then be quickly assembled together on site. Pre-manufacture and transporting saves on time, saves cost and minimises disturbance to the site.

A new display will be ready soon that will showcase the Timberset Building method.

Faster Build Times

Less delays, waiting for safe and appropriate weather to commence and continue building. Less travel by many trades, meaning a more seamless build process, less trades required to travel to site means more time on the build, and less time in the car.

Limited Waste

Easier reuse of materials in a factory environment means less waste of the life of the build and a reduced amount of rubbish on your building site and nearby environment.

Sustainable Timber Construction

Wood is a remarkable resource. It's the only truly renewable resource on the planet. It's versatile, has amazing thermal and sound insulating qualities,  it breathes, absorbs moisture and its natural beauty offers a sense of harmony that is hard to find, especially in amongst the many artificial surfaces of our modern landscape.

Most building materials, such as bricks and cement, take a great deal of energy to create and are hard and heat absorbing. By contrast wood requires a lot less processing (low embodied energy), is a great insulator, and best of all it stores carbon for life.

Greensmart Accreditation

A proven system for over 30 years

Timberset homes have been built all around Australia for over thirty years, with particular success in cold climates. It’s a proven system, compliant with the National Building Code.

Coupled with the natural qualities of timber, the Timberset thermal wall structure has been developed to provide a minimum of R2.7 rating, with the potential for even greater performance. Ceilings are insulated with a minimum of R3.5 rated insulation and our standard floor is rated to R3. High energy ratings are possible, especially if the dwelling is oriented on the block to embrace passive solar benefits. Of course double glazed windows can also make a big improvements to the buildings performance.

What's more, you can add any type of cladding to the exterior of your Timberset home, so you can create a house that stands out from the crowd.  We recommend the Weathertex range of products for their green credentials, variety of finishes, long life and ease of maintenance. They also rate up to BAL 29.

Internally the exposed timber is a great feature of our homes. This provides a harmonious environment that has proven health benefits. We think you’ll also love some of our inspired decorating styles that are modern and earthy.

The Timberset building is a system not only looks great, but looks after you.
