Now, the house construction is complete. Comparisons: There are many differences between housing construction in Canada and in my home country, India. For instance, the houses in India are primarily made up of concrete (brick, stones, cement, mud, etc.). Wooden materials are often used for interiors and not for framing purposes like it is done in Canada. In India, trusses aren’t required because the roof beams are made of iron and solid concrete mixture. Only in a few
hilly regions of India, trusses are placed at the roofs and wooden framing is done, but for most of India, trusses are not applicable. In Canada, housing follows a specific number of storeys (maybe one, two or three) but in India, you can build as many storeys as you want, if you have the permit from the state authority to do so. Related Questions about the Documentary: 1. Is there a specific type of wood used for Canadian housing? 2. How do these type of houses withstand extreme weather conditions like strong winds and extreme snow in a country like Canada? 3. Do earthquakes have serious implications on a wood-frame construction like the one shown in the documentary? How can that be prevented? 4. With technology advancements, is there a possibility of building concrete homes in future?
