As architecture and building structures are getting more advanced as time goes on, I have noticed that less and less people are using the more traditional style of wood for a lot of their homes and I think this is an important topic to bring up. Modern homes are getting more stylish and the way they are being built is a very smart progression for reasons that you might not think.

Avoid A Major Headache…

termSo I work for a company that focuses on home restorations and we help restore homes that fall victim to a number of different circumstances. One of these circumstances is having termites take over your home and destroy the entire foundation. Take a look at this link to see how much damage these little creatures can do. They are not exaggerating at all and I have seen the damage they can do first hand.

This happens much more often to older homes who use a type of wood that was much more popular many years ago and I highly recommend using as little wood as possible for any home or building. As the years go by I have noticed that these types of homes and buildings are becoming less popular and not only does it make sense in an architectural way, it can end up saving your entire home in the long run.

Not many people really take the time to think about how much architecture actually affects and benefits their own every day lives, but that is why I am here!

Your Home!

Have you ever stopped and taken a moment to think about how much work and planning has gone into your home? Even if you don’t own your own home and live in an apartment or trailer, there has been a ton of work and planning that has gone into the building. From the basement, to your bathroom, to your attic there were people who put countless hours into preparing and planning the construction of the building to make sure that it can stand tall and withstand anything mother nature can throw at it (well, for the most part).

Buildings All Around

Commercial buildings like the ones mentioned here obviously take the most time and preparation at the early stages. These buildings are made to last forever and will be standing for years after we are all gone. If any of you out there have never been to New York City or Chicago, I strongly encourage you to try and take a trip and see the vast beauty that these amazing buildings hold. They really are a testament to how far we have come as an intelligent species.
