Info

The goal of the competition organized by Woodhouse Estonia is to introduce and appreciate the profession of timber house builders, promote timber house construction, and its traditions.

International competition for handcrafted log house builders is the only event of its kind in both Estonia and internationally. Professional timber house builders have the opportunity to compare their skills with colleagues in an exciting and engaging format for spectators.

Competitors must demonstrate speed and the best technique in crafting the most important structural components of a timber house – the corner post and the cross beam. The winner of the competition is the participant who completes the task in the shortest amount of time and with the highest level of accuracy.

The competition takes place in three categories – professionals, learners, and axemen.

International competition for handcrafted log house builders is a part of the Räpina Good Home Days that belong to the European Capital of Culture Tartu 2024 main programme.
