Honka – Wood living from Finland
The essence of Finnish happiness comes from having a close relationship with nature and its unique light. Our purpose at Honka is to bring the life force of the northern woods and sunshine into people’s lives. This is why we create healthy homes and buildings from renewable wood.
A tree that has grown in the northern woods is a work of art created by nature: it grows stronger in the extreme sub-zero conditions and stores in itself the light of the nightless summer nights. A Honka log home is a lasting legacy for future generations. Construction is the most environmentally conscious use of wood because as trees grow, they absorb carbon dioxide, which remains stored for the entire lifecycle of the building. Certified, renewable wood is a building material that is sustainable, durable and healthy – and energising.
Ever since the Saarelainen brothers founded Honka in 1958, we have studied wood and learned to appreciate its uniqueness. Each Honka log home is not just a work of art created by nature, but a masterpiece of Finnish design craftsmanship. In Karstula, central Finland, we manufacture buildings that are good for people.
The Honka yellow is the colour of hope and joy for us. Nature teaches us to see the good in life and to understand that even the smallest of deeds make a difference. We want to help our customers achieve the dreams that matter the most to them. We are honoured to bring the life force of the northern woods.
Our extensive expertise in handling one of the world’s oldest and most natural building material has made us experts in healthy and sustainable living.
