Before showing the latest pictures of the construction of the Caledonia modular house in Punta Arenas, i would like to introduce the team in charge of the project. Comercial Brandt E.I.R.L is located in Punta Arenas, Chile. They can be contacted for information about a new house in the Punta Arenas Region by phone: +56-61-239296.
After 30 days of work by only 2 men, the house is now ready for visitors. The Caledonia modular model is a 76sqm single storey house with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The house insulation is constituted of a double layer (Glass wool + XPS) and double glazed windows.
The inner walls are made of Fenix Boards, an MgO based panel with the best features on the market: zero carbon impact, fireproof, water resistant, flexible, impact resistant, parasites and mold prood. By using gypsum boards to save costs, other builders will expose the interior walls to any stress. Gypsum board is easy to break and very vulnerable to moist.
We are very proud to present you the pictures of the house:

Punta Arenas is the southernmost city on Earth, overlooking the Straits of Magellan. Situated astride one of the world’s historic trade routes, its prosperity has risen and fallen with that trade. Punta Arenas enjoyed its first great boom during the California Gold Rush, when it served as a haven for great clipper ships.
Today, Punta Arenas enjoys a special status in Chile with its free-trade zone.
