Typically log-house, but quicker
Unlike CLT, primolam® lets you plan and build houses in a traditional log-house style with a solid wooden core faster. This guarantees not only the typical log-house look, but also the special indoor climate.

For example, the short construction time on the possibility of installing larger windows compared to traditional log-house construction methods. Further advantages include the freedom from settlement on account of crosswise and formaldehyde-free gluing, windproofness thanks to easily made corner joints as well as the simpler quality control due to the high degree of pre-fabrication. The latter also reduces the sources of error and working hours of skilled tradesmen on site. In a nutshell: primolam® is the smart alternative in modern “log-house construction.”
