Traditional building with “kelopelkka”

Kelopelkka, sawn beams of kelo wood which are hand planed on both sides, make for unique material which is well suited for traditional building. Kelo wood is very old pinewood, maybe even hundreds of years old and it does not sag, warp or turn bluish in color. It makes no difference if the wood has been cut by an axe or with a machine, the walls will be a masterpiece of traditional carpentry.

Traditionally, kelopelkka is finished by hand, using only chainsaws and hatchets. At Huliswood you may also opt for machine finished wood which preserves the good isolation qualities of the wood as well as the curved form so that the finished exterior of the house is hardly distinguishable from one cut by hand.
