Today, having all the door/window frames fixed, we are working on the exterior wall. Guess what material is used for it. It is not the siding, or the tin roofing, or the mortar…
They are wooden walls!
This particular client of ours wants us to use the materials that would return to soil, not become rubbish, when it gets demolished. Such an amazing person to think beyond their lives for the precious environment as it would be well over 100 years when that actually happens. I know there are some stuff we have to compromise living in the society with strict rules/code to follow (thus having to use non-environmental friendly materials), but I do hope there will be many more people who thinks this way.
By the way, all the (cedar) exterior walls are NOT painted 😃
