Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) with Rigid 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 rigid insulation which is fixed directly to the panels.
For an example of how flecible insulation is installed with this system, see also 'CLT with Flexible Insulation '
Cladding, insulation and finishes are added and completed by other contractors.

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)
Internal Lining Board
Use a lining board if you don't want the natural timber panel finish. An internal lining can be useful to route services behind (see illustration above)
