Default Building Construction Material

Anyone aware of latest construction practices ? What are the options available for Eco-friendly home building construction.


Thanks in advance...

Are you on the right forum? We burn wood here. Some would argue that it's not very eco-friendly. Who cares about the environment as long as the food is good.

I thought our excuse was to burn the wood rather than letting it decay in the forest where it creates more carbon.

How can that work? Don't the trees take the carbon from the atmosphere (CO2) and convert it to carbon in the wood where it stays in the ground rather than going back into the atmosphere? Unless someone comes along, picks up the wood, burns it and converts it to CO2 and CO which does go back into the atmosphere, or wait a million years until the carbon turns into coal and some fracking maniacs drive out the methane (CH4) releasing it into the atmosphere or burn the stuff to melt iron ore to build new cars rather than fixing old ones.

Sorry too many questions.

It only produces methane in an anaerobic (without oxygen) decomposition.
