How to Assess the Quality of a Prefab Solid Wood House

 For any type of construction, it is only possible to have a quality project if it is properly developed for the place where the house will be built, and by a professional in the area (Engineer or Architect). It is risky to choose a finished project and build it on site without first having the technical analysis of one of these qualified professionals, so that the project is properly adapted to the construction site. For prefabricated wooden houses, this same logic must be respected.

 In the case of the mixed house, for example, the contrast between the wood and the masonry ends up making the internal environment lighter. This, added to the correct positioning of the doors and windows in the environments, in relation to the north, results in a light house with excellent natural lighting.

 In the case of sloping ceilings, it is important to check the roof slope and also the minimum height at the lowest point of the building. In wooden buildings, this type of lining provides better air circulation.
