With few exceptions, homes are framed with softwood lumber. Wood is a cost-effective structural material that’s easy to build with and familiar to DIYers, builders and contractors. So it’s ideal to create the enclosure for an energy efficient home. Building with wood can also significantly lower a home’s carbon footprint. That’s because wood products store carbon. Even better, wood is produced from the sun’s energy, not fossil fuels.
