Wood as a construction material

From tree trunk to dream house

The wood that we use comes from our own forest in Mezzaselva near Bressanone in South Tyrol, Italy, and from certified Alpine forests. We cut the wood at our own sawmills in South Tyrol, East Tyrol and Styria in accordance with the highest quality standards and then process it further in the companies within the Rubner Group.

Benefits of wood

We live out our passion for wood

CO² Storage

Save the environment. One cubic meter of wood takes one tonne of CO2 out of the atmosphere. Anyone who builds with wood stores the carbon in their house and thereby protects nature.

Renewable Material

Wood regrows in greater quantities than those needed. One cubic meter of wood grows every second. This is the amount per day needed for 2,160 houses.


Build for the future. Wood lasts for decades if not centuries with the right processing and selection, as can be seen in numerous old farms and other timber frame buildings.

A natural insulating material

Wood consists of cells that are filled with air. This makes wood a natural and very effective insulating material as the heat doesn’t come in during the summer and doesn’t get out during winter.

Pleasant indoor climate

Wood creates an instant pleasant atmosphere with its natural warmth and scent. A wooden home provides high levels of living comfort, meaning that you feel extremely comfortable at home.

Design freedom

Anything is possible! Rubner Haus makes your dream home a reality, entirely in line with your architect’s designs – we will tailor your dream house to suit you, whether you are looking for a traditional or modern, luxury or detached house.
