Timber vs Steel

Half the stored weight of dried timber is carbon, and the choice of wood or steel by a homeowner makes a big difference between starting with either a CO2 credit or deficit. Building a house with a timber frame offsets the emissions of five vehicles for a year. In contrast, building with a steel frame increases emissions equivalent to two cars for a year.
