"Benefits of wood based designs include: exceptional insulator and energy saver; quick to build; environmentally friendly; aesthetically acrobatic; mechanical and working properties; safe, light, sturdy and durable; water resistant; healthy and natural; acoustically sound; and no rust. In conclusion, wood is good". David Daniel in Freshome's Very Best. The book evaluates prefabricated structural timber housing. It presents case study buildings built with structural timber materials. From the design perspective, the book describes the buildings and presents its findings on space standards used for construction. From a building construction and structure point of view, the book presents materials and construction methods used for the buildings. It explains the structural integrity of the buildings. Since the buildings are built with timber, the book presents environmental sustainability of each building to understand carbon footprint of the buildings. Finally, it provides similarities and differences between the buildings to understand lessons and importance of sustainable timber buildings that have capacity to capture carbon over their lifetime with low or no environmental impacts.
