Low-energy wall structures
A major portion of Honka houses are built with solid wood walls, without any extra insulation. This is not a problem even in the coldest climates like Northern Finland or Russia, as a sufficiently thick log wall acts as a natural insulator. However, we have also developed safe and certified wall structures with additional thermal insulation.
Honka low-energy wall structures enable us to build houses that are extremely energy-efficient and achieve the highest A and B energy classes. The insulation can be added on either side of the load-bearing log wall. We recommend using wood-based insulation like wood fiber or cellulose to preserve the natural breathing of the log walls.
