Panel (frame1) houses are still news in Lithuania but have deep-rooted traditions in Germany, Scandinavia, and the USA. Each year these houses are becoming more popular in other countries as well, including Lithuania. The houses are known for being quick to build, their high quality, and attractive prices. In addition, panel houses are environmentally friendly. Panels are available in different thermal resistance (for standard thermal resistance (R), see section "Technology"). To live in this type of house is to look after your and your family’s health and, of course, the environment.
Construction lasts from 2 to 4 weeks
Quick assembly on-site
High thermal resistance
Manufacture does not depend on weather conditions
Panel (frame1) houses are built of wall panels prepared in the factory together with external and internal finishes or without them (according to the needs of the customer). External finishes, wind isolation, and thermal materials are used when constructing segments of exterior walls. Openings for ventilation, doors, and windows are cut in panels. If needed, windows and doors can be installed in the factory. The set of prepared wall panels is transported to the client’s construction site. All products of Ecodomus, LLC are covered by civil liability insurance.

1Panel houses are often understood as frame houses but, from the technological point of view, this understanding is not correct. A panel house is assembled from the panels made in the factory, while a frame house is assembled on-site from wooden beams of precise measurements.
Load-bearing wooden structures are impregnated with fire resistant materials. Therefore, wall panels that we make meet all fire safety requirements of the Republic of Lithuania.
Impermeability of the house is secured by hermetically sealing junctures of the insulation film (See: The structure of the panel) around windows, doors, and panel joints.
A panel house built with certified1 timber is long lasting. It does not deform under load. When maintained properly, according to official data, the house will last approximately 150 years.
Timber and insulation materials used when constructing wall panels ensure good thermal insulation. Heating of such buildings require considerably less energy.
1Only certified, planed softwood timber of the highest quality is used for the construction of wall panels. (Strength class C24, moisture content below 20 %). More...
