Wood is a regenerative building material that has been used for centuries and from our point of view is used too little in Germany. In addition to the positive environmental balance, the high technological level of the timber construction industry and the high level of prefabrication of timber buildings are a major plus. In times of a shortage of skilled workers, this construction method is a trend-setting alternative to solid construction, in addition to the significantly better execution quality and dimensional accuracy. Construction times are shortened, noise emissions are reduced, CO2 is absorbed instead of emitted, comfort in the living space is increased, etc., etc.
So the question should be more like: Why don’t many more people live in wooden houses?
