House made of wood

Residential house Twello

The advantages of wood
at Woonhuis Twello

The Rijnbeek family wanted to build a sustainable house and therefore chose wood as the ecological building material. The wood also contributes to a pleasant living atmosphere.


Individual glulam

With our glulam, individual constructions can be built, because we produce the components in almost any shape and size – entirely according to your wishes. The kiln-dried wooden boards are joined together by finger-jointing to form long lamellas. Discover our diverse range of glulam.

Solid and versatile element construction

Whether roof, ceiling or wall – X-LAM can be used in a variety of ways. Our X-LAM element construction gives you great freedom in building design. The flexibly usable elements made of cross laminated timber are custom-made for you and can be assembled quickly and easily.
