A family from Maribor a few years ago wanted to move from the urban environment to the outskirts. Their country cottage will be replaced by environmental friendly, natural, bright and big enough house for their family. They have personally met the Company KAGER-HISA through their family friends who have entrusted their positive experiences on non-stressful cooperation and a pleasant living in the house KAGER. Representatives from the company then personally presented their business and production premises and already built houses, where they gained a lot of useful information from the owners.
In a very nice memory they have many visits by Mr. Friderik Kager at their site of construction, his placements of the house and many handmade sketches of the planned appearance of the house in their piece of land. With his sketches they have already imagined the final appearance of the house in a given environment, which fascinated them and lead to a decision that they want just such a house and a new home at the same time.
Due to the steep and difficult terrain the classical builders have coordinated the implementation of the basement for several months that was it constructed in accordance with the project and prepared for the set-up of the KAGER-HOUSE. At the same time it was accompanied by more bad weather and lots of rain, which increased their concern. But on the day of arrival of trucks with elements of the house Kager, the sun came out, which enabled them to have a house built under the roof in the next few days.
In cooperation with the KAGER-HISA they also completed all wooden terraces and carport for the cars. These days, when they occasionally meet each other with the colleagues from assembly team, they are so happy to have a chat and talk about their adventures.
"Center-located fireplace is a key point of living area. In cold winters it heats an open lounge, which occupies almost all ground floor and an open gallery, which extends to the ridge."
Natural materials, especially wood and large glass surfaces, give to the house the greatest charm with its unimaginable light and warmth. The room and surroundings arrangements that were planned in a project look now even better and give more comfort than expected. Center-located fireplace is a key point of living area. In cold winters it heats an open lounge, which occupies almost all ground floor and an open gallery, which extends to the ridge.
The house is heated by a heat pump and a recuperation system that delivers warm in winter and cool air in summer and cools and refreshes the rooms. In all seasons of the year, the temperature ranges between 21 and up to 25 degrees Celsius. In the summer it would be without Venetian blinds that cover large glazing-areas probably too warm, but on the other hand, in sunny winter days these large glazing-areas, which are open to the south, incredibly warmth all the interior.
After seven years of living in the house, the family Horvat is thinking on such way about their house: “If you feel in your own home at any time pleasant, the house gives you a feeling of security and warmth and if this feeling is also felt by all those who visit us, this made you the winner, irrespective of all time and resources you put before in the house. At the same time you can tell to yourself and to the others : This is not a house, it’s my home. “
