Trasporto eccezionale.

Oggi vi propongo una curiosita’ riguardante i sistemi di costruzione delle abitazioni qui in Finlandia.

Le foto che vedete sono state scattate dalla nostra auto mentre incrociavamo un trasporto eccezionale:  alcuni moduli prefabbricati di case da installare sul terreno.

Qui infatti le case raramente hanno le fondamenta come le concepiamo noi in Italia e raramente le cantine si trovano sotto terra;  in realta’ le case poggiano semplicemente su uno zoccolo di cemento,  dello spessore solitamente di un metro circa.  La porta d’entrata si trova quindi piu’ alta del terreno circostante e vi si accede con qualche gradino,  mentre lo zoccolo serve per addossarvi la neve quando la si spala.  (L’immagine qui sotto ne e’ un bell’esempio).

Generalmente le case sono interamente in legno e imbottite con molti strati di diversi materiali isolanti:  i moduli prefabbricati sono gia’ completi di pareti e tetto,  una volta poggiati sullo zoccolo si provvede ad installare le porte,  i collegamenti elettrici ed idrici ed infine gli arredi.

Oversize Load.

Today I’ll share with you,  dear readers,  an interesting fact about house-building in Finland. 

The above shots were taken from our car the day we met an abnormal load along the road:  they were transporting a few prefab houses.

Here in Finland houses can be easily prefabricated,  transported and installed,  as they do not need foundations,  as we conceive them in Italy – you will rarely find even an underground cellar.  Houses just lie on a concrete platform,  about one metre thick,  thus keeping the front door away from the snow:  you will just climb a few steps to reach it.  (The light-blue building in my shot is a nice example).

Prefabricated modules are very practical:  they already have walls and a roof.  Once they are installed onto the platform,  you will just complete them with doors,  electricity,  water system and finally furnish them.  The structure of a Finnish house is generally made entirely of wood and filled with a few layers of insulating materials.

(Our friend Andreas took the first shot above…thanks!)

  1. Anche in Germania è così. Fui molto stupita quando una amica che vive nel Baden Wittenberg, mi disse che le avevano portato la casa già fatta!

  2. Hello,

    It can be scary to came across one of these big loads on the road. We have seen the pre-fab houses around here too. The basements can end up just being a damp place. Enjoy your day, have great week ahead.

  3. Avevo sentito parlare di case precostruite… 😉
    Quì da noi si usa poco e semmai l’assemblaggio viene fatto in loco. (abbiamo le strade troppo strette per trasporti del genere). haha

  4. An aunt and uncle lived in a prefabricated house. They were a way for people to have a home after WWII as they were quickly constructed. The only problem was the roof was made of corrugated iron and when it rained it was very noisy, but I loved spending holidays in their house.
