OUR ROOTS


We have been selling garden houses, distinctive timber buildings and structures to various countries for over 10 years, but HUUDEN roots lie in Tartu County, where our design studio and production facilities are based.

 

In 2016, when the construction of the new building was completed, we brought our activities together under the common brand name HUUDEN.

Estonia is the land of timber with the highest number of wooden houses produced per person in the world. Almost a half of the country, with its crisp and cooler climate, is covered with forests. Wood has served as the main construction material here for hundreds of years and the skills of creating and handling wooden structures have been handed down from one generation to another. The oldest preserved wooden house in Estonia is over 370 years old.

All garden houses and shelters are designed by the qualified designers in our team. The first model of the CROWN range was built in 2009 with new ones added over the last few years. HUUDEN design really stands out from more conventional structures with the inspiration coming from nature, modern architecture and natural curved environments. These aspects are integrated into the CROWN range tastefully and in a balanced manner. We value working with wood highly. We believe that wood is the material to use for producing valuable products.

Our unique and impressive headquarters in Tartu County very much embody this spirit and point of view. The building was created and designed by Martti Kalamees, our head designer and one of the founders of the company, and contains the design studio, development department and production area. To the front our model houses are displayed and this is also where we also test the durability of our products in the unreliable Nordic climate.

It does take longer to produce HUUDEN models than regular milled beam houses. A modern and certified production system is used but the products still require special treatment and long preparation; which is what makes them so special and desirable.

OUR MISSION

Wood is the energy source of forests which we chose to use to make high added value products. We create timber structures which stand out from the more conventional and hope to inspire their users.


VISION

To become an internationally known creator of innovative small timber buildings by 2025.
