    Hi, we are located on the Costa del Sol and are interested in purchasing a small plot of land and building a wooden house. Can anyone recommend a company that manufacturers and assembles wooden houses, and any recommendations for sites that sell plots of lands… Thanks very much.

    With respect I hope you will find an Insurer who will cover it for you so you feel relaxed when you are not there as the risk is greater in hot dry summers.

    Every new house must conform to the Spanish building regulations: El Código Técnico de la Edificación (CTE) and should also comply with Eurocodes 1 & 5 (although Spain rarely bothers with this). There is no extra fire risk than any other mainstream method of construction as they all must meet the same EU fire regulations, and provided the building has structural calculations both site and building specific, insurance is not a problem. The main structure is an engineered timber frame package, highly insulated (floor/walls/roof) to prevent heat ingress in the summer and carbon emission in the winter. The exterior has a clear air cavity with one of dozens of timber or render cladding options that are available. See our budget homes at http://www.urbanmarque.com and information on general matters of building in Europe at: http://www.timberengineeringeurope.com

    Hope this helps.
