These illustrations, supplied by TRADA, are typical solutions to the design of platform timber frame, reflecting good practice at the time of sourcing. However they may not incorporate the specific requirements of organisations such as warranty bodies and guarantee authorities and it is not intended to provide a single prescriptive solution for timber frame design. These are not intended for use as detailed design working drawings.
