For all of human history, societies have created structures out of wood. However, because it is an organic material, it is biodegradable and therefore can deteriorate. This, along with wood having a high absorbency level, creates a poor quality building material.
However, wood is a good material for products such as cabinets or interior uses where the mass is not an issue and is protected from elements that can cause rot. When creating a building, the exposed structure should be made of a natural resource, one that is massive and durable in its own right. Tires are extremely durable, able to shed off water and able to last centuries.
