Hi, Reading the uploaded documents in the boards, I can see recommended techniques using rammed earth, adobe, wattle and daub and cob among others along with examples using these techniques adapted to constructions in Burkina Faso and India. Could you please confirm what kind of locally sourced woods can be found in Ghana to be used in walls in the case a wattle and daub technique is considered or to structure the roof when corrugated zinc sheets are used. Thank you in advance!!
Response to: LOCALLY SOURCED WOOD IN GHANA FOR BUILDING CONSTRUCTION
Some forest timber for construction include Bonsamdua, African Walnut, Utile, Yaya, Akasa, Mansonia, Mahogany, Odum, Sapelewood, etc. See full list of timber species and description on the website of the Forestry Commission of Ghana:
Wood is a heterogeneous, hygroscopic, cellular and anisotropic material. ... There are no vessels ("pores") in coniferous wood such as one sees so prominently in oak and ash, for example. The structure of hardwoods is more complex.
