Wood for Good have put together their top five list of kit houses that incorporate timber. Kit houses are assembled on site from a range of prefabricated components which helps reduce disruption to neighbours and minimsises construction traffic. By incorporating timber into buildings a number of additional benefits are achieved including the use of a renewable, carbon-sequestering material which also has health and well being benefits.
The five kit houses highlighted in the article include a cross laminated timber (CLT) structure built to Passivehus standards, a straw bale and timber module that is covered by the Caravan Act, and a Swedish factory built house where the windows, doors and service conduits are already cut into the walls so once installed it doesn’t take long to complete.
