Cozy, comfort, green, beautiful houses.
Log houses are residences that cover housing needs and desires in a unique way. These houses match harmonically to the landscape and stand ideal for mountain vacation cottages.
Log houses’ walls are constructed with the use of whole trunk pieces, and are distinguished in massif and in glulam log sections’ houses.
For the construction of its log houses, EasyGreen selects the best timber quality. High strength wood like Finnish fir and Lithuanian pine or fir, according to construction demands and your desires.
The timber we use, is that which bears the lowest residual humidity content: 12% ± 2% for glulam log, 16% ± 2% for massif rectangular log and 18% ± 2% for massif round log. Thereof we can achieve longitudinal shrinkage below 1,5% ± 0,5% for glulam log, below 2% ± 0,5% shrinkage for massif rectangular log and below 2,5% ± 0,5% for round massif log.
We always choose heartwood for our massif log structures, sawed out of trees with a diameter larger than 18-20 centimeters which display superior mechanical characteristics.
In the external shell we offer a combination of a log wall along with insulation fitted on the internal side, so that we also achieve the desired energy efficiency of your house. EasyGreen log houses (depending on design and location*) are classified in energy class A and display till 50-67% lower consumption than residences of energy class B (houses also referred as “residences in comply with KENAK –the 2010 Greek Energy Efficiency Regulation of the Buildings).
*Energy classification is related with the specific data of every house: location, dimensions, openings, heating and cooling systems’ installed, neighboring buildings’ position etc, and thus in some cases may be classified in energy class B.
EasyGreen LOG HOUSES can be delivered with the following equipment:
Outer wall of stacked sticks in various sections combined with internal insulation and wood lining externally. Thermal coefficient for 120mm trunk and 100mm insulation Κ = 0,27 W/m2k.
Wooden windows double glazing with low emission film (Low-e) ,argon gas in the vacuum and thermal coefficient Ug 1,1 W/m2k.
*The above cost is valid on building the house from the foundation plate and up, with materials according to the specifications’ guide for LOG HOUSES series, does not include VAT and is clear of long distance extra cost only for the regions of Attica, Viotia and Evia.
Timber, as a natural material, can regulate house internal humidity on its own, thus resulting into unremitting comfort living conditions.
