A never-ending challenge at Daizen is to help both homeowners and associated building professionals understand the multi-layered, interdependent options in choosing timber for a building project. As they say, it’s not trivial.
Dai recently made a concerted effort to explore and demystify the several choices everyone faces when clarifying their vision of the ideal
dwelling (or other construction). The resulting eight-page article, Understanding the Timber, is now available for download from the Daizen website.
It’s worth your while to peruse this document. If you do, you’ll understand much better why there is no one answer to what seems to an outsider like such a simple question. In fact, wood is a profound personal choice.
