In recent years there has been an increase in the popularity of wooden houses. This trend is progressively establishing itself as an alternative to traditional methods, especially at a time of housing crisis and rising prices for building materials.
Whether for a main residence or a holiday home, more and more homeowners are opting to use wood in their constructions, something that lends a rustic, warm beauty to the property.
What are the advantages?
Despite being a relatively recent trend, wooden houses are becoming very popular, with the aesthetic aspect being one of the biggest reasons for this, since this type of construction blends in perfectly with the surrounding nature, conveying a sense of calm and peace in a rustic and natural environment that you can't find in other types of property.
However, there are several other advantages to choosing to build a wooden house, namely:
- Easy-to-work-with material;
- Excellent insulation to maintain a stable temperature;
- More ecological houses, which use renewable, recyclable and biodegradable materials;
- More energy-efficient constructions;
- Possibility of modular and prefabricated construction;
- Faster construction.
How to build wooden houses?
If you're looking to build a wooden house, there are two options open to you. If you have the means to do so, the first option is to follow the traditional process of building a house, using an architect to create a project and then creating a budget and applying for licences so that you can proceed with the work.
This approach allows you to personalise your home according to your preferences, without being restricted by any prefabricated model.
On the other hand, if you're looking for a quicker alternative, you can always choose to hire a company that specialises in building wooden houses. There are several companies available on the market that will present you with various models, allowing you to choose the one that best suits your needs.
A trend in 2024?
Wooden houses, especially prefabricated ones, are gaining prominence in the property market as a more economical and sustainable option for those looking for a safe and dynamic investment. In addition to the advantages mentioned above, one of the great advantages of wooden houses is their novelty, which attracts tourists and onlookers. It can therefore become a great long-term business opportunity for investors who are currently in the market, and may even be one of the big trends of 2024.
From bungalows to country houses, wooden constructions are versatile due to their adaptability, guaranteeing comfort and safety in the hottest or coldest weather conditions. And then, due to their ease of mobility, they are an interesting option for any type of tourism or accommodation activity.
