1 What does BBB mean?
BBB - Basic Building Blocks - is EU patented technology. You build your house from unified BBB elements as kid’s constructor. No heavy machinery needed. No construction workers for months/years on your site. BBB elements are prefabricated and delivered by regular transport. Any size, any shape. Layouts are multiple to 4,5 sq. meters (3m x 1,5m). BBB houses are natural, ECO-friendly, spacious with high ceilings. Electro cabling, lamps and sockets as well as water piping are preinstalled. BBB houses are delivered fully finished, no further costs. After assembly (2-3 days) BBB house is good to use right away. Plug’n’live!
2 What are the BBB houses made of?
Wood. Power construction is made of Austrian glued laminated timber, plywood or wooden processed panels are used for decoration and facades. Interior material is processed plywood. Floor coverings is parquet or carpet. Floor elements are equipped with sound proof BBB system. Insulation is rock wool. Water proof membranes, breathing technology. Roof is covered with advanced tech membrane.
3 Why do you call BBB modular?
Our houses are done out of BBB unified elements. Similar to construction toy, one can assemble almost any shape of the house out of BBB elements. No special mechanisms required, no construction workers for months/years at your site. No damage to your land. BBB elements are delivered fully finished by regular truck/transport, low transporting costs.
4 Are BBB houses mobile?
BBB house is reasonably light construction and we supply them with wheel base in case you need it to meet local requirements. But obviously house cannot drive on its own. CR Line is our mobile version for camping areas and where wheel base is crucial due to local legislation.
5 Is BBB a good for all-seasons use, is it a warm house?
Yes, it is. All year round and good for all climates including Alp region. The minimum thickness of the wall is 220mm, where 160mm is high-efficient rockwool insulation. Additional layer(s) of insulation for colder regions is an option. The windows are energy-efficient, double-glazed. Additional insulation option is available. Heating could be done by electricity, wooden stove, heating pumps. We recommend the first two.
6 What are ceilings in BBB houses?
2,90m Feel the space, breathe well.
7 Is BBB sound proof?
The disadvantage of the wooden houses is that you always hear, what is happening on the upper floor. The usual reason for this problem is, that the floors of the second level are the ceilings of the first level at the same time. The BBB technology prevents hearing anything from the upper rooms as for the next level we use separate elements and the floor of the second level is untied from the ceiling of the first level. In addition each BBB element have proper layer of thermal and sound insulation. On top of this sound proof BBB system is installed in every floor element.
8 What is the price for BBB?
around € 900,- per square meter. Why “around”? The more BBB you take, the cheaper per square meter your building will be. BB20 alone is more expensive than one BB40 in respect of price per square meter. More houses you buy more discount you get. Business customers have special prices and discounts, tax exemptions could be applied. We offer a buy back option for business customers: we could buy BBB houses back upon you do not need it any more.
