Timber Frame Cut in Floor Section Part 3

To see how we got here got to Timber Frame Cut in Floor Section Part 2

Next I would get the strip flooring cut to length and laid out, UPSIDE DOWN, so that it has a chance to season to local conditions and provides a floor to work and walk on.

A ribbon bearer is installed to fasten the lower weatherboards to.

With an cladding system it is advisable to install sarking. 

Make sure that your window and door jams are installed and correctly flashed an the you can start installing the cladding.

All cladding should be installed as per the manufacturers instructions. All natural timber product should be pre primed on the back and joints where you won’t be able to paint them once they are installed. All Fasteners should be able to resist exposure to the weather. Ensure that any joints are tight and waterproof. To see more on this process watch these videos:
The cladding should also, where possible, be spaced so that all the board are even right to the top of the seen wall. To see more on this process watch this video:

With the Cladding complete the eave frame can be built. There are a few different styles of eaves that you could have, the one shown here is a Boxed or Level Eave.

The finished eave should finish around 10mm above the brickwork to allow for the timber frame to settle overtime. 

A quad or similar moulding is used to cover the gap and still allow for the movement. 

Architrave are installed around the windows and doors. Ensure that the materials you use will stand up to the weather conditions.

Skirting blocks should be installed to give you something other than the studs to nail to. These can just be blocks of anything, they don't need to be cut in tight.

With the outside finished the work inside can really start. Internal linings such as Plasterboard can be installed. 

Plasterboard can also be used on the ceiling and the intersection covered with a cornice moulding again made from Plasterboard.

Try to leave turning the floor over and nailing it down for as long as possible so that any paint or plaster end up on the back not the finished face.

Architrave is used to cover the gap between the window jamb and the wall. 

Skirting mould use to cover the connection between the wall and the floor.
