You like this description, you like wooden houses, you have a crush on this one but you are still hesitating?

The advantages of wooden houses are numerous and will motivate your choice.
This explains why this type of house has stood the test of time.
What makes the attractiveness of a wooden house, especially today, is that it is ecological and very economical. If the wood that composes it is exploited locally and in a responsible way, these houses become a good solution to meet environmental challenges.

Finnish pine is exceptionally hard, especially the heartwood. This is why it is one of the densest coniferous woods on earth, a perfect material for building a house.

Apart from that, wooden constructions are natural insulators.
On the one hand, they protect better against the cold than concrete houses. This significantly reduces financial and environmental costs due to winter heating.
On the other hand, wood is a natural acoustic insulator of housing. This is due to the presence of air bubbles in the wood which will allow the absorption of sound and its dispersion in several directions.

To further improve this thermal and sound insulation, linen insulation has been added: linen is environmentally friendly and has excellent soundproofing and thermal insulation qualities. It is a natural insulator that provides well-being and comfort in summer and winter. It has good stability over time and is non-allergenic. Its lack of dust makes it very healthy.

This additional insulation greatly limits heat exchange with the outside. The heat produced by the heating system installed in the house will have difficulty escaping and the winter cold will have a hard time getting in. We can then consider energy savings with this constructive system.

Wood also has the ability to regulate hydrometry to provide healthier air in the house. It reduces the risk of the appearance of microbes and moulds linked to the presence of humidity.
As the humidity level is dampened thanks to wood, which is a breathable material, the distribution of heat in the house is much more homogeneous there than in a house made of concrete blocks or steel.

Solid wood provides a healthy, durable and pleasant habitat that is made to last over time. There are still wooden houses that are over 500 years old. Finally, living in the woods remains a pleasure for the eyes all year round. It brings a warm and natural atmosphere that will never change over time. It's always good to live in a solid wood house!

The commune of Igny, after having been an important site for the production of strawberries in the 19th century, benefited in the 20th century from numerous successive subdivisions.
It has become a residential commune in the greater Parisian suburbs, combining forest massifs, a city center with old rural charm and recent suburban residences.
It is known in the department for organizing a famous comic book festival every year in December.
Igny is located at the heart of the main road and rail axes: N118, A86, A6, RER C (Igny) 16 minutes away on foot, RER B, C and TGV (Massy) 9 minutes away by car.
The school infrastructure is of very good quality with schools and college in Igny nearby, the Steiner School in Verrières le Buisson a few km away and all the renowned private and public establishments in Versailles 10km away (Hoche, Grandchamp, Sacré Coeur, Jules ferry, etc.).
