Wellbeing from nature
A genuine Honka log home provides a healthy living environment with organic building materials, high indoor air quality and a warm, stress-reducing atmosphere. It’s an ecological home that quite literally takes good care of the people within its walls.
Our houses are built from Finnish pine, which is a 100 % natural and renewable construction material and one of the densest wood materials on earth. Because Finnish pine grows slowly, its wood is exceptionally hard compared to any other wood material. It is the perfect choice for solid wood structures.
Healthy homes, inspired by nature
To us, building with logs means creating natural structures without resorting to synthetic insulation solutions or vapour barriers. Honka log homes are plastic-free and breathe naturally. This means that water vapour can move freely between the wall and the air, balancing the indoor air humidity to a level that is optimal for the health of the people living inside.
All technical solutions used in Honka homes are structurally safe and tested. Our houses are some of the most moisture safe, fire safe and earthquake safe houses on the market, which allows them to stand the test of time, in all weather conditions.
Genuine Honka log houses are healthy to own and to live in for centuries.
A stress-reducing living environment
Wood has been loved by people throughout the ages. It is soothing, aesthetically pleasing and it performs well acoustically. It absorbs sounds and creates a calming, relaxing atmosphere.
Interestingly, wooden living environments seem to reduce stress, just like walking in the woods! Numerous studies have demonstrated that environments with wooden structures lower blood pressure and heart rate and induce feelings of relaxation.
