The Wood Box
A Broken Paradigm

Almost every house in America is simply a wood box. The boxes are covered with asphalt shingles, siding of various kinds, brick, or stucco. In a few parts of the country the outside walls are constructed of concrete block; however, the rest of the structure is a wood box.
