About Us

Embarking on a lifelong passion for woodworking in 1990, Jochen Dullenkopf's journey began with a summer job at a carpentry shop in Germany. From his apprenticeship as a carpenter to his innovative approach using Cross Laminated Timber (CLT), his fascination with wood has evolved into HolzHarmonyHomes Inc., a company dedicated to building in harmony with nature and promoting a more natural lifestyle.

How it all started:

It all started in 1990 when Jochen Dullenkopf did a summer job in a carpentry shop. 
Since then, the subject of wood had fascinated him. 
In 1998 he started his apprenticeship as a carpenter in Biberach an der Riß, Germany.

After successfully passing the journeyman's exam in 2001, he worked in construction for 7 years as a carpenter and later as a foreman in Germany.

In 2013 he renovated a former farm in Germany and became involved in efficient building.
Especially the question of massive construction started to interest him. After hundreds of hours of research and many conversations with architects (among others Konrad Fischer) he ended up with the solid wood construction method CLT (Cross Laminated Timber).

So he built the roof out of solid wood in CLT. Here the idea to continue building with CLT was born.
The rest of the house was rebuilt with clay plaster, clay stoves and natural paint as natural as possible.

Since then, the motto is: Back to nature, sustainable management, living in harmony with nature, conserving resources and ecological building, and collecting water have become central themes. These themes are still relevant today.

When he and his family to Nova Scotia's South Shore in 2019, plans to build tiny homes were put on hold. Canadian Immigration did not allow anything else to work other than the current job "Online Marketing".

After 4 long years of applications and endless time, the whole family finally got Permanent Residence in July 2023. 

In the same month, HolzHarmonyHomes Inc. was founded.

Jochen wants to build in harmony with nature and conserve resources, but at the same time as efficiently as possible. This guarantees long-term savings in electricity and heating costs while maintaining a more natural lifestyle.

Wood is a warm building material and has endless advantages, especially solid wood.
