Last week our client started building the foundation for his new house. At the same time, we started production in our factory, 2000 kilometers away.
Materials arrive and house assembly starts
Foundation is ready, crane to unload and install panels in the place. Time for the materials to arrive. With the first truck arrived panels for the ground floor and overlay structure. Next day after unloading we began to install panels. First we laid bitumen hydro insulation layer on the concrete surface and fixed wooden beams. On top of the beams will go panels.
We skipped a few steps: drilling the 11 meter foundation poles, and then adding the concrete beams. All that has been done, and the foundation floor is ready to be placed on top. This is what the building site looks like today:
Add gravel. Sand is nice, but your truck still gets stuck, so we need gravel.
Add sand. Without a layer of sand, all heavy equipment would disappear into the mud of former seabed, so we need sand.
Digging. We’re already 3,5 meter below sea level, so let’s dig until -4 meters.
This will be the access road to the wooden house.
The building season has started. Step one: measuring the plot.
This is Oosterwold, early March. Oosterwold is Dutch reclaimed land, synonyme for: wet, dikes, wind & rain.
And mud, until the roof rack…
Here we will keep you posted about the progress of this house.
On 12th of August, 2013 we have started new construction of a modern wooden house in France. House size – 170 m2 which includes 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, office room, huge living room connected with the kitchen.
Besides wooden house there is installed 200 m2 terrace and implemented swimming pool in it. As a separate building – there is also a garage of 25 m2 next to the house.
Detailed description and a movie showing a log house construction:
From design to a finished built log house. Custom made, solid construction and top quality materials.
In Neerpelt (Belgium, at the border with the Netherlands near Eindhoven) we built a wooden house in “Hansel und Gretschel”-style, as the owner calls it. In our memories the Hansel und Gretschel house was a little smaller, but otherwise this could be it. We still have to finish the window shutters.
