FOR THE ECO TIMBER HOUSE ‘HEARTWOOD’

A custom built, energy efficient eco timber house, which only uses untreated Arctic Heartwood Spruce from FSC certified forests in Finland. This stunning three-bedroom home is insulated using recycled newspaper and recycled glass. With 216 m² living space, there is also a double height dining room from which you can see the beautiful vaulted timber ceiling. The house is heated using a heat pump and ground-breaking new technology “Heating with Ice”, which uses the ambient heat and solar thermic energy, the energy in an underground water tank and latent energy in ice.
