Insulation in timber construction

Timber construction is becoming increasingly popular. The traditional, renewable raw material wood provides a first-class indoor climate and high thermal insulation. Sheep's wool also shines with the same outstanding properties. Sheep's wool insulation in wooden buildings is the icing on the cake for healthy house building.
