How JointKit Works

How JointKit Began

JointKit was launched at the Grand Designs Excel Exhibition in May 2019 generating considerable interest in this new building concept. The inventor, Peter Bucklitsch, says his product will simplify the building of timber framed structures.

JointKit reduces the time, is environmentally friendly, sustainable and affordable!

Planning Permission

Q1 – Is planning permission required?

Not normally but there are exceptions – see FAQ

Q2 – Do I need planning permission for an annexe?

Normally Yes, but the JointKit buildings are exempt under the Caravan Acts

Q3 – Can I claim tax allowances for my garden office?

Yes.  These offices are removable chattels and can be claimed in the same way you would claim for office equipment.

Q4 – Can JointKit help with my planning enquiries?

Yes.

Foundations

  1. Why are no concrete foundations needed

The JointKit buildings are strong timber framed structures and concrete foundations are not needed as the frame is strong enough to support the roof, walls and floor and cladding. 

  1. Where can you find examples of houses built like this?

Most houses in the USA build the complete house with a timber frame and some sort of cladding, usually wood, is fixed to the frame like your JointKit building.

  1. How do you stop the building sinking into the earth?

We use a specialised ground support system that is non-invasive, environmentally friendly and inexpensive. The support system uses the Suregreen PP50 pavers which each support a minimum of 25,000kg so using the normal 6 support sets the weight of the building can be 150 tonnes. That’s equal to 25 African elephants – if you can squeeze them in!
