Wood is a traditional building-material that has more to offer yet! Manufactured in a special way cross-laminated-timer (CLT) can be used as a core-structure for many different types of buildings.
CLT is popular in Europe since the 1990’s. It is getting more and more known in North America. In Toronto and Vancouver there are already high-rise buildings that contain CLT in large parts.
The newly engineered wood panels eliminate many of the challenges former wood constructions e.g. log homes and timber-frame houses had. Structures for houses can be assembled in days and even 5-storey tall mass-timber constructions only take weeks to be conducted.
38% of the worldwide forest area is located in Canada. However the percentace of healthy forest is constantly declining. Clear-cut of widespread landscapes for papermills or bio-gas-plants is not the answer. A controlled forest managetment leads to healthy harvesting of good-quality wood without destroying the global eco-system. Wood as a building-resource is renewable and easy to compose. It minimizes the footprint humanity leaves in nature.
Sustainable living also starts in your own backyard. Growing your own food and becoming energy-independent is part of the mix of natural living. Every mile your food is not traveling, is saved energy that need not be produced in the first place. As we only have one planet, we should take care of it.
Solid wood constructions also have several advantages for tiny structures. Many people nowadays decide to reduce their costs of living. Tiny-Homes are also popular as guest-houses, rent-out-spaces and mobile-homes. Off-the-grid living is becoming extremely popular even in suburban areas!
Wood makes Sense
Most people like to be surrounded by „warm materials“ rather than cold stone walls. If you touch a wooden-wall it will always be warm. In a concrete, steel or stone structures the material takes away a lot of the heat to be warmed up. Former inhabitants of old castles could probably tell us a lot about that.
Timber is a largely cultivated material but applied with new technology it still has potential to surprise us. There are still many mysteries about wood that science is unable to explain!
Wood being a resource that is easy to obtain, super eco-logical and very affordable it will lead the way into future building. Many jobs can be saved and newly created as the key will be a sustainable forest industry. It will be important to have a healthy environment to get the best results.
