Solid timber for natural insulation

Solid timber homes are better at absorbing and storing heat (thermal mass) than conventional buildings. This means a Lockwood automatically evens out variations between outdoor and indoor conditions, naturally absorbing heat when temperatures rise and releasing it as temperatures fall. Lincoln University conducted studies in 2007 which showed solid wood provides up to 2.5 times the thermal mass of concrete.
