 Three good reasons for choosing bamboo homes.

1. Environmental.

It takes an acre of trees to build a typical home, but

because bamboo grows so fast and dense, the bamboo for a home grows

in an area the size of the home itself. Use bamboo and save a forest.

2. Structural.

Bamboo exceeds strength of construction wood by several

times. Durable, resilient and long-lasting.

3. Aesthetic.

Bamboo has a tradition dating back thousands of years

because it is considered such a luxurious, beautiful material.
