This Wood Information Sheet (WIS) outlines the materials normally specified for conventional timber frame buildings. Some variations will occur according to the structural design and detailing requirements of specific projects. Many of the components are also used in innovative forms of construction such as engineered stud and twin stud walls, cross-laminated timber and structural insulated panel forms.

Many components, such as cladding materials and joinery, are not specific to timber frame and are therefore not covered in detail here.

Timber frame houses built under housing warranty schemes should also satisfy the scheme detailed requirements, which may not be covered in this WIS.
