  1. Hi, wondering if anyone had experience of getting a self-build mortgage on a timber clad house? All the TF designs we've been considering are timber clad (its for a rural part of Scotland and these seem pretty attractive to the planners and I also prefer it over block and render), however I understand that only 2 or 3 lenders will offer a mortgage on a fully timber clad house. I've love to hear if people know who these lenders are and if this is an issue folks have come up against. Thanks
  2. My timber cladding is arriving this week, with thousands of nails. But first prep still to do including holding down straps to my timber stud panels, rodent mesh to the bottom of the cavity, and fixing of intumescent fire cavity barriers. As my wall construction is timber stud panels with OSB sheathing and membrane, 50 mm cavity, then horizontal timber cladding on vertical 50 x 50mm battens, i am needing to maintain ventilation of the cavity for the back of the cladding from dpc to eaves. But i need to install ventilated cavity fire barrier horizontally at mid floor to compartmentalise, and possibly elsewhere. Does anyone have experience in which barrier to use? I'm supposing intumescent as it allows ventilation of the cavity, but the strips are really expensive, £20+/m
  3. Hope to crack on with some of the wall cladding this week. 100mm wide vertical boards at 150mm centres, with a second layer of the same on top to close the gaps. All pretty standard stuff. Question is- when I get to an opening, and it inevitably doesn't exactly hit the edge of a board, do I stick to the pattern and just rip the board down to the necessary width? And if it's a window, I would have to just take a chunk out of it. Seems a bit of a faff and a good way to expose end grain. Or, alternatively, do I plan the spacings to be slightly over or under 150mm so that each opening is met with a full width board? Makes marking out tedious. I don't know if anybody would see the slight difference in spacing, it would only be a few mm. @Tennentslager what did you do?
