Frame house. At the very definition of home lies the key difference between this type of houses from the other – the frame. We are familiar with brick, wood, panel, block houses. Referring to these houses can imagine their appearance and understand: name and in tune with the material. A frame house? What do you imagine hearing this name? If you push in the representation of the word 'framework', then this suggests is not monolithic, of a good building. It is true that the frame house no stone mansion of the Middle Ages. The word skeleton (Fr. carcasse – skeleton) is defined as the basis of a building or structure, consisting of separate, connected to each other elements (rods).

As far as solidly and thoughtfully executed framework, for as he will be strong, stable, long-lasting. But more on that later. By the way, there is a technology frame house with his hands not only of wood but of metal. The framework itself from the outside, we certainly do not see. But on appearance of timber frame houses are very different from each other. The reason is clear: there are so many finishing materials. But the highlight of the frame house is covered in other features – just a very thin walls effectively retain heat. For comparison, take the wood-frame walls, wood and brick houses, the same way they can keep warm at the following thickness: 18cm, 45cm and 210cm, respectively.

Why the difference? You have heard this term 'sandwich'? No, not one that can be eaten, but one that is used in construction. Although in principle they are somewhat similar. It's all about the layers, namely the layering. And the meaning is not in their quantity, but sequence location, as each layer is represented by a separate material with its inherent functions. You may have noticed on the sites original slab of metal, ie top and bottom metal, and in the middle insulation – this is our 'sandwich'.
