How about wood houses in India?I read a report in some magazine that China is going into wood houses in a big way. I also understand that wood houses are so common in Western countries. Given our constraints, can we have wood houses? Will be cost be less than the brick and mortar houses we see all over the country?
Will it work out? Do we have wood houses already in some part of the country? Growing wood may not be an issue. ITC which has collaborated with thousands of farmers uses wood for one of its divisions, but wood is replanted too. Similar things can be tried out for the kind of wood required. Demand for steel and cement will come down, and prices will come down too.
