Have recently purchased six acres with dozens of huge live oak trees, 200 to 500 years old, just 30 miles from the Gulf of Mexico in northcentral Florida USA, and the property has an overgrown understory with many smaller, dying, hardwood trees that need to come out before they fall down. And I'm badly in need of more living space, as this is an old hunting/fishing camp with tiny buildings and RV sites. And as wood is my largest resource, I am thinking of cordwood structures, but my son says this is a building technique for cold, snowy, relatively dry climates, such as Canada and New England, USA. And all of the cordwood websites I have visited are in these areas. Does anyone have any experience building with cordwood in warm, humid climates where termites and rapid wood decay are problems? Is there an ecological way to preserve cordwood against insects and water rot? I love the look of this building process, and it looks as if it could stand up to our occasional fierce storms with tornados, and even an infrequent hurricane. And according to the websites I have visited it's easy--even small women and children can build with it.
