ESTONIAN OPEN AIR MUSEUM EXHIBITION – A MODERN FACTORY BUILDING
Tehasemaja – Timber Construction Competence Center helps to bring a broader knowledge of the factory building process to anyone who wants more information about modern technologies and opportunities in the field of timber construction.
Today, construction has moved from buildingsite to factory – in case of a factory production, quality, efficiency and competitiveness increase both in time and price. Centuries-old traditions of wooden construction and continuous development of the sector have made Estonia the largest exporter of wooden houses in Europe.
Companies in the consortium company Tehasemaja OÜ offer handcrafted log houses, machined log houses, wooden frame houses and plywood houses. To celebrate 100 years of Estonia’s independence, the consortium donated to the Estonian Open-Air Museum an exhibition house, which is located in a ticket-free zone and is open to all guests.
Different meanings of Tehasemaja:
- Tehasemaja – a house manufactured in a factory
- Tehasemaja OÜ – consortium company
- Tehasemaja – Estonian Open Air Museum exhibition
