Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) with Flexible Insulation
A cross-laminated timber panel (aka 'Crosslam' or 'Xlam') is a ‘monolithic’ form of construction that uses timber to form load-bearing solid timber wall, floor and roof panels. Openings for doors and windows are incorporated within the panels. In many cases only insulation and cladding is added to the external face.
This example shows the use of insulation installed between timber joists attached to the outside of the timber panel and faced with sheathing board.
For an example of how rigid insulation is installed with this system, see also 'CLT with Rigid Insulation '
Cladding, insulation and finishes are added and completed by other contractors.

OR Brick Cladding
Timber Stain (for timber cladding)
Some timber doesn't require the protection of a stain/paint. Species such as larch, oak and red cedar weather naturally. Ask the timber supplier for more details.
Render Paint (for render)
I-Joists for walls
Internal Lining Board
The choice here is to leave the timber panel exposed OR cover it with a lining board. A lining board will provide an easy option to run services behind.
