You build with locally available materials. In a forest timber is
virtually free if you have a sawmill. Usually not all the forest will
catch fire every year. You could build a house faced with refractory
materials that would resist a forest fire, but it would be costly and
environmentally unfriendly (assuming you can't quarry and process the
materials locally). If I lived in a forest I'd maybe build a fire
cellar, so I could stash my stuff then evacuate. It would be foolish to
live in a fire-prone forest and not expect your house to burn down
occasionally, and more foolish to try to save the house by not
evacuating. But cool to live in a forest.

Default Birdbrain Macaw (now "James Wilkinson" LOL), the Sociopathic Attention Whore

On Sat, 09 Sep 2017 23:20:49 +0100, Birdbrain Macaw (now "James Wilkinson"),
the pathological attention whore of all the uk ngs, blathered again:


The cost of the materials pales in comparison to having your house and
possessions stay there. What's wrong with bricks?


More relevant question: what's wrong with your head, Birdbrain?

--
More from Birdbrain Macaw's (now "James Wilkinson" LOL) strange sociopathic
world:
"People who need to take courses should be banned from driving. If it
doesn't come naturally, get the **** out of my way."

Cool to live in a forest? If the place has an internet connection,
maybe... and, ideally, a supermarket within striking distance.

Spooky!

The creepy old thing looks as though it's heard Hurricane Irma is
heading its way, so, it's upping sticks and moving somewhere safer.
