The processing of wood used far less energy than most other building materials. Wood products lower carbon footprint. In construction of buildings, it is considered that wood has more than 10 times the insulating capability of steel or aluminium and is five times more effective as an insulator than concrete. Houses made from trees are sustainable, renewable and environmentally friendly. If you want the warmth (or coolness) to remain in your home, and you want to spend less money on heating (or cooling), wood is a tremendous alternative to brick, concrete or stone.
People prefer their construction to be quick and that’s exactly what Woodbarn can offer as its USP. Woodbarn can construct a 100m² wooden house, on site within 7 days. Imagine popping to Coorg for a two week vacation, returning home to discover a new building has sprung up in your neighbour’s garden. I told you wood was impressive!
When compared with conventional material like brick, stone or concrete, wood constructions certainly do save time, and which in return saves labour, water usage and tug of hassel with the regular labour. Wood is applicable in extreme weather conditions such as heavy rain and snow cladded conditions like in Aulli where Woodbarn has done a project called ski resort,where eco-friendly construction can continue without any problem.
We have done many projects for the Indian government in Uttaranchal which is an extreme site. Among the landmark projects done by Wood Barn, the floating wooden cottages at Ashtamudi Backwaters in Kerala for Club Mahindra, The Tamara, Coorg for Infosys and The Micasa, Goa. We have completed an eco-resort in Vaishali, Bihar.

We have also done private farms and villas for personalities like Nafisa Ali, Naina Balsawar, Shatrughan Sinha, KPS Gill and others.
Our objective is to spread green construction culture in the country and to evade all the myths associated with usage of wood for construction works. Woodbarn is also regarded as the most reliable name in the wooden structure segment in the country since 2006, being the pioneer to import and produce it in India to give the best quality and an impeccable finish to the clients.
