I was at the Homebuilding show in Glasgow and noticed a system for battening onto your timber frame and screwing cement boards to it for rendering. I was told it would save time and money, and also you gain more space per/m². I thought this was great idea.
However, I suggested it to my architect and she was not so keen. Possibly as we are ready to submit my building warrant drawings. She said it would come under non standard construction. If this is true I am worried about getting it insured and problems when selling on. Any advice would be appreciated.
