Amazing product from Brikawood – a wooden brick house that can be built in only days!! With several models to choose from, these are truly unique and innovative homes. These homes use a very ingeniously designed wooden “brick” to build a home that requires no nails, nor glue to complete! Once the foundation is completed, the Brikawood house can be completed by simply piecing the various brick components together, using self-locking systems and spacers for additional strength. All these home are built to exacting and high standards, meeting municipal/civil code regulations and look truly amazing in the process!
The Brikawood home is unique in a variety of ways, but is particularly notworthy in its low-energy footprint. The materials used have all been approved and certified for use in a passive energy construction, and includes the use of certified windows and insulation that provide substantial benefit. The insulation is made using filtered wood shavings, and all windows come with double glazing, or even triple glazing if you select this option.
The entire building is designed with heat recovery and ventilation as a priority, and the structure is constructed in such a way as to provide solid and air-tight protection from the outdoors, while ensuring excellent ventilation and air-flow.
As these homes are designed and built in Europe, they also conforms to the rigid standards set by the European Union in recent years in the RT2012 energy consumption guidelines for new housing. While meeting these rigid standards is not mandatory, Brikawood has demonstrated their commitment to passive construction and design, by ensuring their buildings meet these stringent standards. This means that every structure is carefully designed with energy efficiency as a key component of their construction. In fact, they claim that their wooden brick structures maintain a consistent 19-21° celsius (66-70° Fahrenheit) temperature range!
