‘The Modern Timber House In The UK’ was commissioned by Wood for Good, in collaboration with the Forestry Commission Scotland and written by architect and timber building expert Peter Wilson.

The book looks at housing in the years 2007 to 2017, starting just before the major economic crash and ending with a look at how the Farmer Review, ‘Modernise or Die’ published earlier this year, will impact on the future of housebuilding.

Key issues around affordability, finance, planning and sustainability are addressed across 14 chapters, with examples of how timber products are used to deliver new forms of housing to very high standards of construction, energy efficiency and environmental responsiveness.
