Six steps to your HUF house

Your HUF house is something very special. In order to ensure quality in all building trades, the entire service chain is offered from a single source. With the HUF group of companies, only competent specialists go to work. This makes the planning and construction phase a relaxing experience for you. We will explain to you in detail how the way to your timber house looks like during a personal meeting. We will give you an overview of the process in the following six steps in advance:



The HUF Planning Agreement is the initial instruction for the HUF architect to start designing your HUF house. The first step after signing the Agreement is a visit to the site with your HUF Architect. The Client’s wishlist of expectations, the plot characteristics and the Architect’s skill and experience combine to create the house design


Access all areas with your Golden Key! The first tangible part of your home comes in the shape of your personal golden key, presented upon signing the HUF Sales Contract. This golden moment signifies that your dream home will soon become a reality – and that you hold the key. Once the planning appli-cation is submitted, and planning permission is granted, the schedule for the production and assembly of your project will be produced.


The next step is to select your interiors – a stage we refer to as the “Fit-Out”.For two to three exciting days our Clients visit the HUF HAUS Design Centre and the Show Village, both located at our headquarters in Hartenfels. HUF interior design experts assist our clients to discover, experience and select from the wide range of options displayed and available for their home.


Upon completion of step 3 HUF HAUS produce working and construction drawings, and order all necessary materials, for the production of your home to begin. Each component for your post-and-beam home is manufactured in our quality-controlled production facilities in Hartenfels. Following a final quality inspection, all components are loaded and ready for transportation.


The dream home is alive! Experienced and efficient HUF assembly teams erect every HUF house over a short period of time of typically one to two weeks. This trademark speed is enabled by the meticulous and methodical premanufacturing processes applied in our factory, as well as intelligent logistical planning. Within days the house is watertight and the interior fit-out works begin. After the project manager’s final quality inspection the house is ready for handover and for the family to move in.


HUF HAUS’ service and support do not end with the handover. Our very own after-care specialist ServiceART provide a speedy, flexible and reliable service as part of the home’s warranty should any work or service be required after handover. HUF HAUS and Service ART are also delighted to assist owners beyond the warranty period – a life-long partner for you and your home.
