Kelo wood cabins and saunas

For builders

Our partners can organise your entire construction project, from plots and professional design to turnkey services. Of course, if you have experience and know-how in constructing log buildings, you can also build it yourself, in which case we can simply deliver the material to your plot.

Our partners include wood carvers skilled in traditional log construction, carpenters and construction companies, furniture makers, transport contractors, architects and designers.

Check out our cottage collection and saunas below.

Kelo wood cottages

The kelo wood cottage models found on our site are well-established options. We also produce frames based on customers’ own wishes and ideas, although we recommend taking some design tips from our ready-made models. The building license images of the models on our website are included in the frame price.

Yard sauna made with UHTUA kelo panels

Our collection also includes a yard sauna made from UHTUA kelo panels, which is also ideal for smaller plots, such as those in city locations. The exterior is made from timeless and valuable grey kelo wood, whilst the interior surfaces are hewn kelo beam. The yard sauna is delivered either complete and ready for you to take a sauna in or as a partial delivery.

Smoke sauna

Smoke sauna is the original sauna. Wood, stone and fire. And which wood would be better suited to a smoke sauna than a hundred-year-old kelo! Over the years, Huliswood has supplied dozens of smoke saunas made with kelo. The models on our website are already built and tested in use, but we also manufacture the sauna according to your own wishes.

Kelo wood beam – a unique building material

Hewn log sawn from kelo wood is a unique material that is suitable both for new log houses and for repairing old log houses. Kelo beams are hundreds-of-years-old red pine logs, which do not bend, twist or turn blue.

The wall is professionally hewn either with an axe or with machinery, with the end result looking just as if it were made by the carpenters of years gone by. Traditionally, a kelo beam is carved by hand using only a chainsaw and an axe. At Huliswood you can also opt for machined kelo beams.

When machined, the log features a wide planed round log reserve – this gives the wall good thermal insulation. However, the conicity of the tree remains, and from the outside, the building will not differ much from the hand-carved version.
