The timber of Holz100 system is harvested when the sap levels in the trees are at its lowest; influenced by the gravitational pull of the moon cycle. A stable moisture content is achieved by allowing the timber to drain vertically and drying naturally for at least 1-4 years. This drying cycle builds a muscle memory in the cellulose fibres of the timbre, thereby producing lumber that is more stable and less prone to cracking and splintering over time. The result is a controlled indoor climate in Holz100 homes.
Wood Homes Built to Last

How Dry is my Wood Home?
The moisture content in your new hardwood flooring is as important as the building structure to prevent shrinkage and gaps once you’ve moved in. Holz100 is a sustainable, natural, sound-proof solution to building a wood home that is less prone to dryness overtime due to its natural slow drying process. The moisture content of a wood home built with the Holz100 system is 6-10%.
Wood Home with Holz100
The Holz100 system is harvested from mature trees that have been naturally exposed to varying temperatures and weather conditions throughout its drying lifecycle. The drying process, therefore, instills in the wood a muscle memory. The slow and natural drying process enables the oxidation and depletion of sugars that otherwise would attract the growth of fungi, mold and insects. Build a sustainable wood home with Holz100.
Holz100 harvest trees at the right time and maximizes natural wood drying techniques to achieve quality timber with natural moisture protection.
Moisture content below 20%, protects the wood from fungi growth.
Moisture content below 8-12% deters insects from feeding on the wood.
A wood home built with Holz100 timber will have a moisture content of 6-10% and will be naturally protected from fungi and insects.
Healthy living starts with your choice of what you bring into your home, and ultimately into your body. Your everyday choices affect your mental, physical and mental well-being. When you decide to build with Holz100, your daily life in merely breathing in the scent of natural wood will certainly benefit you in more ways than you realize.
We don’t notice right away, but why do we get headaches and feel dizzy or suffocated in large stores or new buildings? The reason is simple. According to EPA, “On average, we spend approximately 90% of their time indoors, where concentrations of many VOCs are consistently higher indoors up to ten times higher than outdoors… VOCs include a variety of chemicals, some of which may have short and long-term adverse health effects”.
A Canadian study has demonstrated that the colours and texture of wood elicit feelings of ‘warmth’, ‘comfort’ and ‘relaxation’ in people, all emotions that have been shown to reduce stress, anxiety and recovery times in hospital by studies examining the influences of music, plants and therapeutic massage.
Holz100 is 100% free of toxic building chemicals. But it gets even better - with Holz100, you're surround by solid wood; just like second skin.
