In terms of maintenance, only painting procedure is needed for these wood houses. (Kindly read the how often the maintenance is needed note)

The land preparation prior to installation is the customer responsibility (kindly check with our technical department before preparing the land).
Our houses can be built on a concrete slab – metal structure or wood foundation. Local codes, soil condition and personal preference will determine the actual size and style.
Before the production of the house, the wood will pass threw a 24 hour fumigation process treatment to protect it from termites, (this step should be done every 5 years locally – kindly refer to the maintenance note prior)
Once the house is assembled, a licensed painter will apply two layers of oil paint as preservative to the outside & inside walls.
Upon the client request, fire delayer paint can be applied.
Like all houses made of wood, there will be wood settling.
But unlike other wood houses manufacturers, we have a policy of using timber that has been seasoned naturally. In addition, we design each home with the ability to absorb the small amount of settling that naturally occurs without affecting the structure.
The wood is a natural insulator, millions of tiny cells in the wood trap air to provide one of the most efficient insulations known to man. But in some area’s (in high leveled land where extreme weather can occur) insulation are needed, however kindly note the following:
A- When a single wall house is ordered, we cannot insulate the house (the wood walls are the only insulation available in this case).
B- When a double walls house is ordered, rockwool isolation material will be used between the two walls.
C- When installing a single wall house, the plumbing & wiring are generally running visible on the walls sides and covered with a locally made wood coverage.
D- When installing a double walls house, the plumbing & wiring are installed as any conventional houses, in the interior stud partition walls.
There are many factors involved and will determine the costs, you are kindly requested to fill the quote request form on our website by following this link request a quote
Any system you can put in a conventional house will work as, or more, effectively in a wood house, due to the superior insulating quality of wood walls.
Financing a prefab house is no different than financing any other home.
And while we don't provide financing, we do provide assistance in obtaining it. Both housing loan and conventional financing are common methods.
