The most well-known timber construction structure is timber frame construction. It is characterized by the vertical styles and horizontal lines. Several beams form frames that reinforce the construction.
Another variant is the post-beam system, which is mainly used in industrial buildings and other large projects. It is a kind of skeleton construction because this method also uses a wooden frame. The vertical posts and horizontal bars are larger frames. All elements are thicker to withstand greater loads.
With Cross Laminated Timber (CLT), solid sheets of different layers of wood form the walls and floors of the building. These are glued crosswise. This provides extra strength without increasing the weight of the construction. This makes solid timber construction suitable for large buildings with several floors and for family homes.
Wood stack construction is a construction system that is mainly used in the recreational sector. Usually vertically stacked wooden beams are used with a tongue-groove system. Horizontal systems also exist, but are less common.

In timber construction, all load-bearing elements of a building construction are built from wood. There are 2 techniques that are used much more often than the others: timber frame construction and wood solid construction. These both have their advantages such as good thermal insulation, their ecologically responsible raw material (wood)…
Solid wood construction involves building with solid wood beams. This is anchored to the foundation, without mortar or bricks. The solid wooden beams provide extra strength. This construction method has come over from the Scandinavian countries and is also on the rise in Belgium.
