We started katus .eu with the aim of promoting modern Architecture. 
Since the very beginning, katus.eu has been a place for Architects to share their works.
Today we are changing the concept to a broader vision and we set ourselves the goal of helping all those people who want to build a prefabricated wooden home.

Prefab wooden homes are NOT for those who look for cheap or temporary solutions.
Today, prefabrication is the most advanced way to build a house and many luxurious homes are built with this system.

This Guide will tell you everything you need to know to start your journey into the world of prefab homes...

Who doesn't wish to live in one-of-a-kind house?
Every year, hundreds of thousands of new homes are built in Europe. Many of them are custom-made, unique works of fine architecture and engineering.
Despite the number of successes, building a prefab wooden house is not as easy as it could be. Many give up just because they cannot find the right information from the start.

Can automation help the Prefab Wooden Houses Industry to run faster and better?

Innovation often comes from applying knowledge from one field to another one which is totally unrelated. This is exactly what happened with this modular wonder. 
The Wikkelhouse was designed and built by a small Company in Amsterdam that started up as a theatre scenery Company in 1989.

Over the course of the years, the way modular homes are designed and manufactured has changed considerably.
The introduction of new materials, machines, technologies, made possible to build houses in a controlled environment in a fraction of the time and at a lower cost.
Despite its hi-quality and affordability, is "modular" the best way to go if you want to build your own dream home?

Two years ago we made an exception to our "wooden only" policy and we had an interview with people from Kodasema OÜ, a small and ambitious Company providing a clever turnkey housing solution.
Today we went back to see how they are doing...

“The A-frame house is an A-shaped building which, back in the Soviet era, was familiar to people as a building typology that had the roof touching the ground, or Rannapiiga. This typology is not known for its trendiness but rather for being (by square meter) at least half the price of a normal new building” explains Indrek Kuldkepp, the founder and one of the owners of Avrame.
