why is it allowed to build in wood? every summer I spend time on replacing rotten wood, or painting wood so it not rot...All I have built from ground myself I built in massive granite, sand stone or skifer, my personal few structures will stand for 500 years without maintenance as absolute minimum (well, pray for no earthquakes).
I have lifted many tonns of stone this summer, I can move blocks 300 kg and even 600kg by hand, it is all technique, let gravity be on your side. If one man-power can move 600 kg blocks, then ten thousand egyptians could sure move 200 tonn blocks by simple hand and foot techniques, no advanced jumbo mumbo needed.
In particular Nordic-Countires have no clue about Theta-bleed! Have someone calculated the annual national wood-rot-bleed? Should be next to GDP!
build in wood about 1000 meter above sea level fine, the fungus eating wood dont like it there..below 1000 meter should be forbidden by law!
