Huf Haus is a provider of customizable prefab kit homes. Built in a factory in Germany, you can choose to put these post and beam homes together yourself, or Huf Haus will manage the whole project for you.
Hi, Huf Haus is actually a German company (with offices in various places around Europe). I know this because I went to look at one of their model homes here in Switzerland a while back and talked to the sales people.
Also, I didn’t really get the impression that the houses can be built on your own. We were told that they send a team of experienced builders to build the house. The price includes that cost if I remember correctly. The advantage is that since the parts are pre-assembled at their factory, building time is faster than with normal house construction.
Grand Designs, a home design/building show in the UK, followed the building of a Huf Haus last year:
Excellent design ,indeed. It should not be a problem to build one of those in the USA. First I wanted to go for a Huf House but then my wife found another company doing very much the same style in Germany. They already built houses in Japan. Since it’s a pre-fab as well, construction in the US shouldn’t be a problem!
As for the energy efficiency, I can only speak for the house we chose(www.davinci-haus.de). It’s got a brilliant energy-rating, with triple glazing and stuff. Should be similar in this case!
What are your reasons that sold you to building a Davinci haus as opposed to Huf Haus?
I checked out thier site and I just love these homes.
I was thinking we would have to move to Europe to live in one of these. I am looking to see if they build these homes in the USA or not.
My wife and I fell in love with this style of life as when it comes to homes. The first encounter was about twenty years ago in Mannheim Germany at the Mia Market. We thought at that time they had reached perfection. The company has only gotten better. We are in Florida and what we would like to know now is how much and when can we get started.
How would i go about being a representative in Australia. This product is outstanding and i have a lot of interest in the product, so am sure there is a market for it here.
I would be honoured to represent this company.
Hi, I’m a developer in Australia looking to build an Eco style mixed use village using stainability and modular construction techniques. Based on affordability/high end product. I love your designes and concept. It’s exactly the concept I’ve been looking for. Would your company be interested in working with us in a constructing a 300 site/ dwelling based in Qld Australia. I look forward to your responce.
We are looking to build in Western Australia and are very interested after seeing this house on Grand Designs. Can you tell us if there is a agent or contact in Australia and give us an estimated cost of building. Many thanks
Could you please give us an idea of the costs
of these homes. We live in Co.Wexford, Ireland.
Also, if you have any brochures or similar designs
we would be most grateful to receive them.
I would like to complement you on your designs
and method of fabrication.
Hi I live in Northern Territory of Australia. Darwin. The Huf House is to me is extreme.
There is nothing quite like it here in Australia.
I am and many of my friends and families want this here in Australia. It suits the climate and would have massive gains to the end user and the enviroment even to the ashetics of enviroment.
Please tell us how much it would cost to do this here.
We are in Tasmania. Desperate to build one of these houses. Believe they suit the Australian climate beautifully and would do so well in this country.
Any chance they may start an Australian branch given increasing demand?
