By nature. For nature.
In these times when the environment, more than ever, needs our support, the choice of a log home is clear. Because what could be better than a 100% renewable material divided exclusively from sustainable forestry?
And this applies not only to timber logs themselves, but also to the insulation that must be considered when selecting thinner walls. The insulation material in a Hazel Tower is recycled, consisting entirely of residues from the production of other wood building components.
Another advantage with timber as building material is that the logs are a natural heating regulator. During the winter, they store heat from the low sun as it crosses the outside of the timber walls. That energy and heat wanders over to the inside, which reduce energy consumption for heating.
A 100% renewable material exclusively from sustainable forestry.
In the summer, the timber has an opposite effect when the sun is high and the walls keeps cool. The same process provides a cooling effect, creating a more comfortable indoor temperature during the afternoon and evening.
Thanks to the combination of new technology and proven methods, modern timbering is very efficient and meets today’s energy requirements. Plastics or other artificial materials in the walls can be omitted, as the timber alone handles dampness through its breathability.
