ABOUT OUR LOG HOMES
We manufacture log houses in all shapes and sizes and for many uses: detached houses, holiday homes, restaurants, hotels..
All the log houses we manufacture are unique, based on the individual wishes and requirements of our clients
Our manufacturing is based not only on the latest CAD-CAM technology, but also on renowned woodworking traditions.
In addition to the log constructions our log house deliveries usually include all the other structural wooden parts, interior lining and carpentry products (windows, doors and stairs).
Benefits of log houses
Logs retain humidity and heat and give them out slowly and evenly making the indoor air pleasant and healthy. Solid wood gives a house a soul.
The surface temperature of wood is higher than that of harder materials, which gives the feeling, that the rooms are warmer than they actually are. Therefore you can maintain an indoor temperature a couple of degrees lower than usual.
Log houses fit well in natural landscapes, and thanks to the availability of modern solutions, the houses can also be part of the urban residential areas.
Log houses are ecological due to their wooden construction. Also the use of non-renewable natural resources is minimal.
Modern passive log house – made of finnish arctic pine
Oy Timber Frame Ltd was the first Finnish company to create a modern passive log house.
The house meets the future requirements for energy efficiency and its carbon footprint is nearly non-existent.
Thanks to a new kind of construction technique, based on vertical logs, our passive log house has a modern outlook and it also fits perfectly in an urban landscape.
The structures of the passive log house are based on solid wood. The construction system is a new innovation, resulting of our long-time survey and hard work.
Benefits of passive log houses:
A passive log house is built without the long corner joints. This offers opportunities for a completely modern appearance. Any type of exterior cladding can be used, which makes the house suitable even for urban locations. Thanks to the vertical log construction, a passive log house does not settle as a traditional log house does during the first couple of years.
The less energy a house consumes during construction and heating, the more ecological it is.
The energy consumption of a passive log house is minimal compared to standard houses, which means money saving.
No matter what happens, we will be looking at higher energy prices in the future, so it’s worth of mentioning, that cheaper heating systems and heat distribution methods based on free energy are available for passive housing.
Benefits of traditional log houses:
After the erection of the log frame, a traditional log house is nearly finished outside and inside.
Log house structures are very secure and known to remain healthy for centuries.
Careful architecture, renewable heat sources, modern HEPAC systems, and ideal positioning of the house make a traditional log house a perfect choice.
A log house has an extremely small carbon footprint and it is easy and quick to erect.
