Wooden House in Neerpelt, Belgium

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.

The wall construction is special for this this wooden house. We used two solid 8 centimeter walls, and in-between we put 25 centimeters of cellulose. The cellulose breathes, it aborbs humidity. This is a fully damp-open construction. No plastic foils in the walls of this house,just pure nature.
