Your questions answered
Before choosing and building your dream home, there are many issues to consider, so that the final effect meets the needs of household members, is comfortable, and also economical. When determining project requirements and setting a budget, there are many questions that come to mind before making the final decision. Some of them are answered below. If you have any additional questions - please contact us.
1. What are your houses made of?
They are mostly made of wood, but not only. The entire prefabricated element consists of a KVH wooden structure, wool and external and internal linings. A detailed description can be found in the Technology tab.
2. Do you carry out individual projects?
Yes, we do. In the BOX HAUS technology, we carry out individual projects for independent investors, public buildings, multi-family buildings and many others. More details can be found in the Individual Projects tab.
3. What the cross-section of the wall consists of?
The basis of our prefabricated walls is high-quality KVH structural timber characterized by high strength and low thermal conductivity. In addition to it, the Fermacell gypsum-fibre construction board and Knauf Naturool Pro wool are also used. External walls are additionally supplemented with ISOVER STOPAIR insulation foil and 12 cm thick Termogranika polystyrene protecting the house against heat loss.
4. Are wooden houses safe?
They are very safe. There are many myths around wooden houses. Yes - wood is a combustible material, but drying and planing reduces its flammability. This is the basis. The second factor limiting the combusitiblity of houses is the cladding. The BOX HAUS technology uses fire-resistant boards for the ultimate safety of the future residents.
5. What can I heat my house with?
And what would you like to heat it with? You have no major limitations, although BOX HAUS strongly encourages zero- or low-emission solutions such as electric heating, heat pumps or infrared. All this, combined with photovoltaics and in the future with energy storage, allows you to reduce heating costs to a minimum.
6. Can I have a fireplace?
Yes. If that’s what you wish to have.
7. Can I have underfloor heating upstairs?
In the BOX HAUS technology, thanks to the use of prefabricated ceilings, you can have a traditional screed as well as traditional underfloor heating.
8. What is the price per m2?
The price per m2 depends on what investors expect. A different price will be for a one-storey house and a different one for a house with an attic. The price also depends on the finish of the house. In the case of the building shell state, it will be lower than in the case of the house finished to a developer’s standard. Unfortunately, it is not possible to quote a single price per m2. We always create an individual cost estimate based on the needs and requirements of each investor.
9. Where can I see the BOX HAUS houses?
Model houses, which are also our offices, are located in Łaziska Górne, Mikołów, Tarnowskie Góry and Witaszyce (Wielkopolskie Voivodeship). Contact us and make an appointment.
