This week I started my second wooden house in Umbria, precisely in Umbertide, North Tiber Valley, on an urban plot bordering with a public pine tree forest. The basement is in concrete (wood is obviously not suitable for underground construction), but from now on there will be no more concrete. Just timber panels (X-lam, ie: cross laminated timber), beam, trusses and steel joints and screws. The wood panels came directly from Austria on two huge trucks, already perforated with doors and windows, ready to be assembled in the most perfect, light, ecological prefab construction. And it will be earthquake-proof, highly insulated and thus energy-efficient, comfortable both in winter and summer. The pictures show the ‘root’ beams that mark the house’s outline and on which the panels are then erected. More to come soon.
