Okay, pop quiz time. Put away your book and take out your number two pencil.
Circle the best answer to the following question:
a). 4,000 board feet
b). 14,000 board feet
c). 24,000 board feet
d). 34,000 board feet
e). There is no wood in the home because it has a brick veneer.
Finished with the quiz? Okay, check your result because the answer is…
c). The home shown in the picture above contains ca. 24,000 board feet of wood – wood that can be found in the structural elements, cabinetry, mouldings, doors, etc. That’s a lot of wood indeed… even for a house with a brick veneer!
So, the next time you look at your house, recognize it as the biggest investment in a single wood product that you likely will ever make.
