Consider alternative framing routes
Standard timer frame is a versatile and cost effective option in many cases, but it's not right for every project.
For sites that have very difficult access, for instance, a stick build could be more appropriate.
Here you need two things: first excellent fabrication drawings sowing each timber frame wall broken down into a series of fully dimensioned panels. this produces a cutting list, so studs and noggins can be pre-sized to make the process quicker.
The second is an excellent carpenter: someone who can read drawings properly; has a logical , practical and efficient approach; and who might relish the challenge of literally fabricating the house on site. It's a refined skill and wonderful to see in operation, but it won't be a quick build.
