A combination of wood and concrete is used for the ceiling in accordance with sustainable architecture. Wood is coupled together with concrete for a higher load-bearing capacity. The layer of concrete is thick from 10 to 15 cm.
In order to make sure the house will last for more than 100 years, we use solid concrete progressively replaced by natural materials that also can persist much more than 50 years.
Construction is rapid thanks to the prefabricated wooden structure with precast concrete units used in contact with soil.
The single-layer facade wall is reinforced with thermal insulating bricks or fill-in insulation like wood-fibre insulation boards, straw, or wool.
Humidity in the house is regulated by natural materials such as wood-fibre insulation, wool, hemp insulation, clay plaster or boards and wood.
The open bearing construction of Molehouse gives the possibility to extend the house and its walls can be moved so as to give the house a new function.
