Most of the timber used comes from the local area or region. An area known for its good timber quality all the way back to the sailing ship era. The standards for Living Forest are used as a basis. This means that the sellers of the timber are environmentally certified and can document the work’s origin.

All timber must be grown slowly, with the least possible twist, so that a desired result is achieved. The timber used also has a high proportion of ore (heartwood). The ore is nature’s own impregnating agent and protects the timber against insects and rot.

On the same day as the timber is cut, it is placed in a modern drying chamber. The drying process takes 20 days, and the drying chambers are heated by a wood chip heating system with an output of 1100 kilowatts. The timber must be really dry and free of blue wood. We use all waste from production for drying timber and heating our own buildings. This form of heating saves Tinnoset the environment 2000 tonnes of CO2 annually.


We trawl the forests all over Eastern Norway for the largest logs. There are enormous dimensions, but it is absolutely necessary when we are going to erect the largest log buildings. The oldest timber we use can be 250 years old.
When a building is designed and ready, the construction process begins. Producing a log building is like building a Lego with custom cut timber.


The loft hall is a full 600 square meters, and here under a roof, several buildings can be lifted at the same time. In the log hall, the buildings are completed before they are taken down and transported to where they are to stand. Here the lapping process is repeated. The building is delivered ready for decoration.
