I prefer concrete houses. Where we live earthquakes are not a big threat. However hurricanes and tornadoes are. Concrete houses withstand more abuse than wood homes do. Also, we have termites here and wood houses suffer so much more from that. Concrete also keeps homes cooler during the summer and warmer during the winter so it lowers cooling and heating bills.

WE DO HAVE THE thoughts my friend. Concrete or wooden house should be considered in what country you are living. Earthquakes is no common in the Philippines but termites are evrywhere that is why concrete houses ate prefferer. i do also like concrete houses.
