We are only on day 5 since construction of this umbrian wooden house started (although this post comes much later) and the roof is ready to go in. The middle floor and the roof are built exactly the same, with laminated beams (primary and secondary), matchboards and osb boards to add rigidity to the package. On the roof, on top of the osb we have 160mm of wood fiber panels for excellent thermal insulation and a ventilation chamber to keep the roof cooler in the summer. The main beams are pre-cut so that the secondary beams are easily inserted in and then properly screwed on. Ceiling and floor intrados come with a white finish (or any other color and treatment) that speeds up the completion work. The eaves and the triangular balcony on the first floor are in X-lam, the same structure as the walls, but used horizontally. The same could be used in the internal floor and roof if one prefers a more ‘modern’, flat, but textured, ceiling.
