"Environmental Friendliness of Living in Wooden Houses for a Person on the North of Russia"

Tonkikh, Vladimir Alekseevich


The main function of a dwelling is to protect people from adverse meteorological influences (cold, wind, atmospheric precipitation) by creating an artificial human habitat during periods of work, rest, sleep, and restoration of vital energy. Centuries of experience show that wooden dwellings provide comfortable conditions for a long stay of people. In the North of Russia, timber is a traditional building material. The main reasons for the loss of wooden buildings are biodegradation and fires. The experience of operating objects of wooden architecture, built 200-360 years ago, confirms the high potential of the natural biostability of wood.

Keywords: tree, earth, man, building, society.
