Question by Katarina: What kind of materials are used for a traditional Thailand house? I’m starting a school project that includes explaining the house materials used in Thailand such as wood, teak, bamboo etc. Thanks for the answers. Isn’t there any other type of wood used?
Answer by Derek B
Teak is a wood from tropical forest trees. It is extremely hard (hardwood) and durable. I lived in Thailand for a year, and was inside a few traditional houses. All I saw was teak. I saw many more from the outside, and they seemed to be made of nothing but teak, but it is hard to tell. Bamboo might be used in the houses of people who are not as well off. Try Googling “traditional Thai house”.
