Module building is a magnet for visitors at the Caravan Salon

Less is more – Mini houses are very much in vogue. The mobile holiday house made of timber frame construction exhibited by LivingCon fascinated visitors at the international trade fair in Düsseldorf.

From August 25 to September 3, several thousand visitors took the opportunity to visit the innovative modular building on the fairgrounds and find out about the advantages of the innovative concept. In particular, the solid timber construction and the associated longevity and energy efficiency of the building as well as the given mobility and sustainability in a small space, were able to convince the interested public.

For example, various usage ideas for the building concept were discussed and newly developed in the course of discussions, which show that 30 square meters as a living or working space can be completely sufficient and the modular technology offers expansion possibilities and room for reuse. In addition to being used as a classic, barrier-free living space for the older generation, as a holiday home on private properties and campsites, as a tiny house for young families and students or as a smart office, special areas of application were also in focus. Owners of mobile homes, for example, showed great interest in a module „home port“, which offers docking facilities for carvans as a permanent winter residence and a resident residence. For allergy sufferers, the focus was on the healthy indoor climate and the use of sustainable building materials. Even self-sufficient housing solutions with completely independent electricity and water supply are currently in vogue. 

„In summary, the building concept can be described as“ expandable, interchangeable, transportable, wonderful, „says managing director and master carpenter Helmut Schäfer. Nevertheless, Schäfer and his team were surprised by the great interest during the fair. „We knew that we were able to catch the pulse of the times with the concept and the possibilities, but such an onslaught and targeted interest has already overwhelmed us“, continues Helmut Schäfer.
