You ask - we answer.
1Where we could see Koleliba?
You could visit Koleliba Family model in Upper Austria or visit us here in Sofia,Bulgaria where we have sample in our factory.

Timber is natural, durable and ecological material. We use certified KVH timber, specially made for structural load bearing. Before installation we treat it with fire retardant impregnant that also prevents wood decaying, fungi and insects.
3Do you need planning permission to place a Koleliba in a plot?
Typically you don’t need planning permission to park a Koleliba in your plot. You would still need access to water and electricity. Please reconfirm with your local authorities their requirements and we could assist you with drawings and additional information if necessary.
4What is the usual production time?
If you choose amongst one of our standard options, typical production times is 3 months. Have in mind that lead times may occur. If you opt for bespoke design it usually takes about 4-6 weeks to design it, develop it and then another 3 months to produce it. Look at Bespoke section in our main menu.

Yes, we could use ground screw foundations as well. In this case for the delivery you will need a crane to position the house.

8What is the maintenance of a Koleliba once built?
After you have become an owner of your very own Koleliba you will have to take a proper care for the trailer checking regularly the tires, lights and brakes. What you will also have to do is re-oil the exterior and the interior of your Koleliba to make it last longer and keep the wood protected from the elements.
