The disadvantages for those who decide to build a wooden house are
- Difficulty in selling the house in the future: the buyer may not appreciate the fact that it was built in wood;
- Difficulty in making changes during construction.
However, the first one cannot be considered a real "problem": the resistance to building or living in a wooden house is due to the prejudices of a large part of the population towards this type of construction, which increase as the latitude decreases. Some have dubbed it "the three little pigs syndrome". That is why you may find it difficult to sell your house if the buyer is not a connoisseur of timber construction systems.
The second problem is irrelevant for a German who decides on every last detail of a project and then doesn't change his mind, but it is rather distressing for us who are used to deciding until the last minute on the positions of walls, electrical sockets, doors... Prefabricated timber construction does not allow these 'last minute decisions' because it works on the basis of different concepts: you think and decide during the project phase and then respect the choices made. It is therefore important to have clear ideas and to refine every detail during the design phase.
