Wood Houses

Why are wood houses more environmentally friendly than those of brick or other materials?
First, because wood is a renewable resource and, secondly, because such construction involves less energy consumption for heating.

Another strong argument in favor of wooden houses is also the cost of construction somewhat reduced compared with the housing made of other materials. Neither conditioning is not very expensive, well-insulated wooden house proved to be cool enough in summer that you do not have to abuse of the air conditioning system. Therefore, even in winter should not consume too many resources for heating. All this leads to savings not only financially but also in terms of fuel and energy, so the emission of pollutants is diminished.

What choices you have if you choose a wooden house?

Well, depending on location you may consider several options.

Massive log houses

There are traditional log houses made of handcrafted wood in the rough. They usually pick on concrete foundations, but are made entirely of massive trunks of wood, previously untreated, but peeled. The entire building is made once, by superimposing actual logs and their joints at the ends and shaped by hand carving. This house provides a very strong structure in terms of mechanical efficiency of the seismic protection. Between joint surfaces of mineral wool is inserted for thermal and sound insulation. The wood is then treated to become fire retardant and to acquire resistance against harmful microorganisms.


Laminated wood beams houses

They are based on the same technique as massive log houses, but are made of glued laminated wood beams. What are these? Compact timber beams obtained by combining pieces of timber in the first phase in the form of blades, which are at their turn glued together in special conditions of temperature and pressure. They are more stable over time, not being the subject of specific deformations of solid wood, can have sections and large lengths and provide an easier finishing of the walls, exposing just regular wood surfaces.


Laminated wood structure houses

Assembly module of structural elements creates a beam-column type network in which all parts are pre-dimensioned and processed in the factory. Fixing wooden foundation structure is made by special fixture, which insulates all parts of the wood surface of concrete. These can be filled with large glass panels or “sandwich” insulated panels.
Wood still remains the most used construction material because it has a great resistance in time.
