Norwegian self-build house on site

Thibaut Devulder

The house in Eidsvoll we designed last year is nearing completion now.

Our self-builder client has been hard at work finishing the house's timber frame (all using pre-cut I-joists), now well insulated with blown-in cellulose insulation.

The cladding of the facades is also underway, using wood shingles made of untreated malmfuru, a species of local pine grown slowly in the Norwegian mountains, which is rich in heart wood and naturally resistant to weather.

The family is planning to move in later this summer.
