Every person who wants to build a house starts with the prejudice that a house with wooden structure is more like a temporary home and not one in which ourselves and our children should live. At the same time, in Western Europe, many people choose to build their houses of wood, and the trend is still growing.
Now, if you are curious to know why do people choose to live in houses with wooden structure, here are some advantages:
• Because they are very energy efficient and that means years of small bills.
• Because they are resistant to earthquakes of 9 degrees Richter – wooden structure is more flexible than concrete or brick walls.
• Because they are green and healthy, using natural materials.
• And, of course, because wood is more comfortable, keeping cool in the summer and warmth in the winter.
