Common Woods in Building: A Practical Guide
Build a House with Elm Wood
Elm wood gives a home character. Furthermore, it resists decay and stays strong for many years. Use it for your door frames and wall edging, or implement this material in your kitchen, stairway, or walls. Otherwise, build a gazebo, patio deck, or fence with it. Decorate your exterior and interior with elm furniture too. It’s a material used in classic architecture.
Home Building with Poplar Wood
Poplar wood has a unique colour and texture that makes attractive siding, staircases, trims, and beams. When treated, it lasts a long time and the higher-grade materials provide a classy look. Since the grains typically run one direction, this wood doesn’t easily snap or warp. You can use it for just about any home design.
