A ray of hope in wooden architecture, a global phenomenon, comes in the form of high-quality, high-performance wood species.

Wood has outperformed any traditional construction material with the correct design and construction skills. Furthermore, Wood Frame Construction is a relatively new concept in India, with the potential for quick expansion. The market is currently specialized and untapped, but as timber construction gets more common, it will grow significantly

Canadian Wood has progressively evolved to strengthen its position in the industrial business, largely to a well-thought-out strategy. It commenced by exploring the manufacturing industry to discover how people worked with wood and to gauge consumer preferences. Builders and architects have made extensive use of wood in their projects due to its numerous engineering benefits as well as decades of research and technical breakthroughs.

Woodniidos' projects predominantly emphasis on Canadian wood species.

Woodniido’s wooden houses are a more environmentally friendly and cost-effective alternative to classic brick and concrete residences. Wood is not only a natural product, but it also has environmental benefits. These wooden houses are constructed from natural, nonpetroleum materials that are both recyclable and biodegradable. Despite the availability of a wide range of building materials, wood remains the most widely used construction material in many parts of the world due to its appealing look, fair cost, ease of working, and adequate longevity when protected from moisture and insects.

All of Woodniido’s wood products are from licensed Canadian wood dealers and they mainly deal with 5 different species of wood each with its own working and physical properties. Canadian wood exhibited its WoodNiido house, single-story pre-fabricated wood frame house made from five Canadian wood species. It's one of many demonstration projects employing Canadian wood species that have been created across the country. Here are a few of the most common species we employ in our projects:

1) SPF(Spruce-Pine-Fir):
The spruce-pine-fir (SPF) group is a mix of Engelmann Spruce, Lodgepole Pine and Subalpine Fir. SPF has a high strength-to-weight ratio and is primarily used for framing in North American housing. Due to its dimensional stability and superior gluing properties, SPF is used extensively in the flatpacked furniture industry. It is also a great choice for modular houses, interior finishing, boxes, pallets, packaging cases, and concrete formwork. But we don’t want to bore you with the technical detail, so I’ll give you a summary of the key features of all of them combined, okay?
- Advantages of good planning and shaping quality. Remember we emphasized versatility?
- It’s got excellent nail and screw holding properties with very good resistance to splitting.
- Great staining properties.
- Great strength and dimensional stability.
- Outstanding working properties. And that’s our favorite because it’s such a good experience working with this material.
- This is where we would normally hand you the samples, but given we’re WFH in our wood constructed office, we’re showing you the virtual samples for reference:


2) Western Hemlock:
Western hemlock features a fine texture and a straight, uniform grain. This species is seasoned uniformly in dry kilns to improve its strength and stiffness, and to enhance its resistance to decay and insect attack. It offers a wide array of applications, ranging from mouldings and interior woodworking to general construction, roof decking and plywood. This wood species is primarily known for its even grain, which offers excellent machining properties.


3) Douglas Fir:
Douglas fir is valued globally for its extraordinary strength-toweight ratio, making it the ultimate choice for heavy structural purposes like post and beam construction. It is also a preferred choice for glue laminated beams (glulam), doors, general millwork, etc.


4) Yellow Cedar:
Yellow cedar is fine-textured and straight-grained and its natural extractives make it a decay-resistant wood that is aromatic when cut. Due to its various natural characteristics, yellow cedar is widely used for shingles, poles, marine pilings, oars and paddles, decorative panelling, mouldings, and cabinet work. The structural grades of this species are also commonly used for exterior applications such as bridges, decking, stairs, and for landscaping.


5) Western Red Cedar:
Western red cedar is one of the most commercially valuable species. Its exceptional working properties like natural resistance to termite, rot and decay make it an ideal choice for outdoor applications. The appealing dark colour, light weight and soft texture makes it suitable for various interior applications as well. Its flexibility and versatility enables its usage in roof shingles, exterior siding, exterior cladding, decking, greenhouses, and saunas.
