 Laminated Veneer Lumber

LVL stands for Laminated Veneer
Lumber, an engineered wood
product that uses multiple
layers of thin wood assembled
with adhesives.

innovation is now allowing space and
visual effects that previously would have
been costly, or even impossible, to achieve.
It is inspiring architects, designers,
builders and end users to reach for

Customkit Homes.

by making a feature of the portal legs/
gussets or rafters. If you want the LVL can
be encased so that you can’t see the portal
legs or rafters. This creates the look of a
large timber beam but you’d have no idea
what timber has actually been used.”
