Creativity with Wooden houses:
Light wooden framework: This is the most common alternative and a large amount of small components are used, that facilitate building modules, interchangeability and pre-manufacturing.
Advantages of wooden houses:
Wood does not act as a thermal bridge, but as insulation, therefore keeping the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter, which makes it a much more sustainable construction house. Savings have been calculated to be between 50% and 60% per year in heating and air conditioning.
As concerns maintenance, it has to be checked every once in a while, since it might need exterior paint, gap sealing, etc.
