Northern wood – a durable, high-quality raw material
Finland’s clean forests, pine and spruce grow slowly because of the harsh weather conditions. Trees’ growth period in one year is only 3 months, which means that the tree grows slow and becomes durable.During nearly 100 years of growth, the wood is toughened in hard frost, rain and storms. This makes Scandinavian and Finnish wood extremely durable, safe and healthy building material for wood houses. And this is why we get our wood imported from finland. The oldest log buildings in Finland are more than 500 years old and still look new and beautiful .The wood houses last for generations if maintained perfectly and looks new when repolished .
WHY WOULD YOU CHOOSE WOOD ?
Wood is a natural insulator . It means that living in wooden houses are protected from the severity of the external climatic conditions .even if its very cold or very hot outside ,the internal temperature of the cabin or house remains at uniform level.
Wood is thermally beneficial.Material used in construction such as concrete, cement, and metals are affected by the increase or decrease in the heat. Thus resulting in structural cohesion causing damage.Wood never tends to expand even in intense heat. when the temperature drops it helps to preserve the integrity of the structure resulting in longer life of the wood building.wood is resistible to both cold and heat.
Many musical instrument are made of wood. It is because of it’s acoustical properties of the wood, It is also the reason why music concerts are held in halls that have wooden walls. wood absorbs sounds resulting in less noise and echo
Wooden building are highly energy efficient. Due to their natural insulating properties, wooden structures like the wooden house requires less use of temperature control equipment. During winter they offer warmer interiors and in summer ,the internal temperature is relatively cool.
Due to less consumption of energy, wooden houses have low carbon emission levels. such structure are environment friendly.those who are concerned about their carbon footprint and subsequent impact on the environment can choose structure made of wood as their dwelling place .such structure can help the environment to stay clean and safe which ultimately improves the physical health and mental wellbeing .
Rubbing certain energy against one another can transfer negative charges which creates imbalance in an object and that phenomena is called electrostatic charge.This is a big deal for living a healthy lifestyle because it is proved that electrostatic charges are believed to be unhealthy. wood emits ZERO ELECTROSTATIC CHARGE.
