Log house materials

Wood is a living material that stores the warmth inside when it is cold outside, and maintains a level of coolness when the heat is unbearable outside. A house built from natural materials is very comfortable to live in all seasons and one of the main reasons why wood construction is becoming more and more popular. Finnish wooden houses are a symbol of high quality and long standing traditions of wooden house building.

Rovaniemi log house offers a wide range of log house materials, from classic round log to unique solutions, such the dry ‘Dead Standing’ KELO pine. During the manufacturing process, these trees do not undergo mechanical processing, and therefore retain all their natural qualities.
