Terraced house with brick and timber frame

There's a 2 bed terrace house. It's about 100 years old. It was just fully renovated to a high spec. They've photos of the before and after. Before was wood suspended flooring which is now insulated and concreted, along with insulation with all the walls, new wiring, piping, and new roof. New extension with kitchen and new windows.

Compared to many of the neighbours houses it looks great, nice and warm, lovely set up. Engineer looked at it and said it was a great job, but impossible to tell without deconstructing it. I should him the photos etc and he said, it's good.

The front of the house is original brickwork, the terraced sides are as well, however they removed the brickwork from the back and made it timber frame which then joins the small extension where the kitchen is. I've seen the photos during the renovation and they've insulated really well, damp proofed it and have a letter from the construction company that did all the work.

I'm a brick or block person myself.

A) Why didn't they build the back with brick or blocks like the rest of the house during such a renovation?

B) Is there anything I should worry about with a timber frame rear vs brick etc?

Are the windows themselves the only thing holding up the timbers and therefore bricks above them? I’m adding insulation boards before new windows go in, and wondering if the bit above is gonna shift when the windows come out? reddit.com/gallery/kocw6w

Anyone know what the 1” horizontal groves are for in the SIDES of each joist in this picture (not the adze marks). The house is brick with timber frame floors and was built by 1808 German settlers in Harmony Pa. Ignore the 2x4s that were added later for plaster. Maybe for floor boards?

Lasercut plywood house - replaced the fachwerkhΓ€user style wood framing with xps foam bricks. I'll try the next without any timber framing apart from the door and window frames. Also need to work on stone colouring.

Did they have brick houses in Iptingen, Duchy of WΓΌrttemberg in 1800? This brick house is timber frame inside, but brick outside. It was built in 1808 by German settlers who came over four years earlier. I’m trying to understand why it’s not half-timber frame with wattle and daub.

Opinions on timber houses? Was thinking of buying one as a cheaper alternative to a standard brick and mortar.

I’d love to hear from someone that has actually bought one. From what I’ve researched timber houses can last well over a life time if the wood is treated and maintained.

The one I was specifically looking at come flat packed or full built from this website.

A timber building can last as long as a brick building Depending on many external factors such as climate, weather, location and maintenance, a wooden house can easily last as long as a brick one. Wood performs better than brick, particularly in areas prone to high winds or earthquakes.

Not to be confused with the Timberwolves, who can last a mere 3 quarters... if they get lucky.

Problem with applying washes on foam bricks and balsa timbers

I have made custom washes (based on YT tutorials) and used game color washes, but I encounter the following problem:

After base coating foam bricks and applying a dark wash, the wash initially seems to go into all the recesses and the spaces between the bricks, but as it slowly starts drying, the wash doesn't remain in the recesses and it looks like it slowly dissolves. The result is that the recesses' color stays pretty much the same even though it's supposed to get darker after the wash.

The same thing happens with balsa timbers when I try to darken the color of the recesses.

Does anyone know what I've been doing wrong? It seems like such a newbie problem but it's been bothering me for a while and I can't find a solution. I paint timbers and foam bricks with really heavy drybrushing (after painting them black) which gets really tiring on the hands (since I want the recesses to remain black).

The washes otherwise work on building walls and easily go (and remain) into the recesses created by the tinfoil ball method.
