Unlike Woods commonly found in Europe or America, exotic woods that we use (see below) offers many advantages. Indeed, they are IMPUTRECIBLES, which means that insects and fungal do not attack this kind of wood: Therefore, NO TREATMENT IS NECESSARY. In addition, because of their superior densities, exotic woods are much more resistant.
The wood we use is entirely legal, every orders being checked by the Ministry of Forestry of Indonesia.
Advantages of a wooden house
- The solidity: The wood is a Soft, flexible material, thereby respecting the earthquake-resistant construction standards.
- The Sustainability: There is no time limit concerning a wood construction well realized.
- Insulation: The wood is the BEST MATERIAL concerning insulation and soundproofing.
- Reduction of humidity: Humidity is at the origin of fungal growth and proliferation of micro-organisms. Wood does not guarantee less moisture, but a management of it: Indeed, unlike concrete, wood reacts to humidity, acting as a hydro-regulator. It absorbs excess moisture and releases it during dry weather, therefore defining the concept of “breathing wall”.
- The fire resistance: Contrary to popular belief, the wood resists well to fire because when burned, a Carbon layer is formed and isolates the underlying wood, significantly delaying the total combustion of the building.
- The ecology: Due to its insulating characteristics, wood allows you to lower you energy consumptions, therefore, in a long term, a reductions in emissions of greenhouse gasses.
- Architectural liberty: A wooden House does not necessarily mean a mountain Chalet. Indeed, because of its softness and flexibility, a wooden structure can be adapt to the needs and tastes of everyone from a small rustic, to a brand new modern design!
- Economical: At first, Wood requires a slightly bigger investment than a conventional concrete construction but at a medium and long term, it becomes economically because of the gain of energy consumption. In addition, the construction delays for a wooden house or much more shorter than a concrete one.
- Space saving: At an equal solidity, cinderblock walls have a 30cm thickness, while wooden walls are only 22cm large. This produces a gain in living area of 5% for an average sized home.
- Warmness: Finally, the wood material is a warm, reassuring material, which allows you to feel at your “home sweet home” with confidence.
