Thermally modified ash wood has been used for a house immersed in nature in Indiana.

Designed by the studio Haus for an American family, the dwelling is sober, modern and energy-efficient.

For the exterior walls thermally modified ash wood has been selected, while a version with a slightly lighter color has been used to cover parts of the interiors.

The American ash of AHEC – American Hardwood Export Council was chosen for its sturdiness and its distinctive grain, color and character.
