Wooden houses

About wooden houses

Wooden houses are solid, stable, very resistant and generally speaking they can last a very long time. There are many stories that houses like this have survived the worst natural disasters from Mother Nature. These houses also survived the great hurricanes of 2005, Katrina and Rita. This does not sound surprising. Unlike traditional walls, which are solid and inelastic, wood is very flexible and made of solid material, so they are more resistant to natural disasters than ordinary houses. That is why in Japan and in the West, where earthquakes are frequent, this type of construction is often used. There are still well-preserved wooden houses in Europe that are over 800 years old.

The story that wooden houses are warm and cozy is not made up. Compared to cold ordinary walls, wood is very warm to the touch. Logs also have their own thermal mass and are made of dense material. Solid wood is very energy efficient, it maintains the temperature and pleasant air inside the house throughout the year. Wood has a unique ability to prevent constant air humidity in the room at a level of 45-55%, which is optimal for the human body. When the air humidity is higher, wooden walls absorb excess moisture, thereby achieving ideal natural climate control.

If a wooden house is built from solid and properly integrated wooden elements, it will be very energy efficient. This means that less money will be spent on heating and cooling during the summer. Houses built like this are 20-30% more thermally efficient than traditional houses. Condensation does not occur in warm wooden walls and, accordingly, fungi and rot do not develop, both of which occur in cold stone walls.

In terms of insulation, 50 mm wood replaces a 200 mm wall-block so that log cabins are very warm in winter and cold in summer.

In addition to being very energy efficient, wood is a very good sound insulator. The wooden walls are very thick and reflect external sounds and provide complete peace and quiet. Wood is a unique building material because it has a great ability to absorb toxic and harmful substances, especially cigarette smoke.


The material we use is 100% natural. That’s why it is said that the walls of these types of houses “breathe”, in winter the houses are warm and cozy and colder in the summer. There is no need to install air conditioners in such spaces, the humidity in them is optimal.

The construction of a wooden house takes less time and is cheaper than a classic (brick-concrete house). Namely, after the completion of an ordinary brick house, it takes some time for the water that was used during construction to dry out of the walls, so during that time it is not suitable for habitation.

Wooden houses belong to the so-called dry construction, so it is possible to live in them immediately after construction. The conclusion is that we can build wooden houses in the winter without any problem and move into them during the same winter, in a healthy and natural environment, with significant savings in heating and cooling the premises.

Generally speaking, wooden houses are very healthy and comfortable, whether to live in them or to serve as holiday homes, they will provide family warmth and comfort for years to come.


Man’s desire to have a house that can withstand even the strongest natural disaster is understandable and justified, does it have to be built of materials: Which one? Of course, wood! This is considered by a team of experts from scientific and research institutes in the world.

Currently, a wooden house is not inferior in relation to the technical characteristics of buildings built from other building materials, and in some important aspects – it is superior. One such important parameter includes seismic stability.

Seismic resistance of wooden houses exceeds almost all other building structures. Seismically, a wooden house can withstand oscillations in the Earth’s crust up to 9 degrees. Such seismic stability was achieved through a special design and construction technology.

Events around the world that warn us that we may be entering an era of major natural disasters. Bearing this in mind, the construction of earthquake-resistant buildings is more relevant than ever. Seismically wooden houses reach the elasticity of structural elements. It also plays an important role when building a wooden house. During an earthquake in a wooden house to be safer than in houses built from traditional materials
