Do you use dry logs/ dry wood?

All the wood used in our construction is dried in our factory. The kiln drier ensures the removal of water and moisture in the wood. If the wood is not dried, the house structure can be damaged by distortions and swelling of the materials.

Where is the wood harvested?

The wood comes from Nordic countries and forests. We careful select the wood for the constructions to insure the durability and quality of the houses. We have the FSC certification and most of the wood we use is coming from responsibly and carefully managed forests.

What materials are used to build the house?

When building the houses, we use two varieties of wood: pine and spruce. These types of wood provide with a warm climate, due to low density. During summertime, the house is kept fresh thanks to the wood breathing features. Also, the wood is solid, flexible and resistant.

Is the wood treated?

Before reaching the construction site, only the round logs are treated at the factory. It is also possible to treat the wood before the arrival of the house on the construction site. The treatment at the factory is an option.
