Do we use a lot of pine for building houses?

    Yes, pine is a popular choice of wood for building houses.  The Northern pine is typically used for finishing as it bonds with glue abnormally well.  The Georgia pine is a bit darker but is also used for finishing.  The Loblolly pine is denser and is commonly used for framing when constructing a house.  Other common types of wood, used when building a house, are spruce, yellow, and fir.

    Generally Douglas fir, true firs, pine, redwood, cedar, spruce and hemlock are the most used lumber. Douglas fir and pine are used heavily as dimension lumber for wood framing. Additionally, pine is often used for shelving, molding and paneling. Redwood and cedar for exposed applications because they are the most weather resistant.
