Log houses for healthy living

Indoor environments have a very important influence on health and wellbeing because people spend about 90% of their time indoors, either at home, at school or at work. That’s why every Kontio house is an example of healthy living. In fact, healthy living and wellbeing is the main focus our research and development work.

Kontio log houses are also designed to last. They are made from Arctic pine, which, because of its slow growth, contains a high percentage of heartwood. This heartwood is strong and durable and also has antibacterial properties. Kontio's homes are made from massive, completely natural wood, and our structures are designed to prevent the condensation of moisture, even in variable temperatures and conditions.

Kontio Arctic Pine is responsibly sourced and comes from sustainably managed Finnish forests, where more wood grows than is harvested each year.
